Very interesting picture, but I just can't spot the KC-97 nose! Please, please, let the scrappers stay clear of the two Convair jets in the foreground! This is the first time that I clearly see the difference in length between the CV-880 and the CV-990. The 990 Coronado is quite a bit longer! One of the 747's is a rare 747-300, ex-JAL.

There is also an Rockwell Aero Commander. Is it an AC 560? (my favorite plane in FS9)

Also, is the green one an F-80 Shooting Star painted up to look like a Russian Mig for the movies?

How about the one that is white with a blue stripe, is that an F-86 or an F-100?

Super shoot... Looks like APSA CV-990 with red/white tail & scrapped Delta TriStar tail.
