Many never left, others were sold abroad or sent to museums, or returned to service.

Already covered: Monthan Memories (by dtw9 Mar 21 2010 in Military Aviation & Space Flight)

Great photos.
I also posted a link to this site in the Photographers Forum a few days ago as I felt every airplane photographer could learn someting from Neil Aird's early work, but the post got deleted...

Sorry, did not scroll down far enough, but then the references to similar subjects you get before posting did not have a good day either.

IMO, one of the most intriguing posts I've ever seen on

I wonder when the last of the WWII vintage fighters and bombers left that place... maybe some time in the early 60s? There are a few C47s and other such planes in those pics, but mostly it's "jet era" aircraft. I'd love to see a similar collection of color photos from 1955, though that is probably never going to happen. Great collection of shots, and remarkably clean and sharp despite the age!
