Arizona Gnomes are known for stealing fancy signs.  They wont steal paper ones.

 Yeah, that's a pretty cool museum. The grandcanyon is just a bit away from Flagstaff where I live. Flagstaff has some good local restaurants and breweries if you are staying there.

I just love it when I'm driving down an unfamiliar road, and something special pops out, catches you by surprise, and makes you turn around and go back.

 

I was working on a project in Dallas for a couple of months, and was driving down US 80 near Forney, TX, when I suddenly saw a MiG-15bis on the side of the road!!

I turned around and went back, and found that it was sitting in front of an old warehouse that had been converted into an antiques mall. (http://www.deridderantiques.com/)

To see it sitting there, almost forgotten, exposed to the elements, and slowly deteriorating away, rather than sitting in a museum or a restoration shop, made me a little angry, and a lot sad.

 

So I snapped a couple of photos, got back in my truck, and left to continue on my errands.....with mixed emotions, and a little tear in my eye.

Despite the neglect, it looks to be in very good shape. Go down there, buy it, fix it up, and post some videos of you flying it. I'll give you a year.

:great:
