Alabama Gate Guards, Outside Museum Displays and Air Parks

Birmingham:  Air National Guard Base UH-1, OH-6, CH-54, F-4, F-84    November 2006


Birmingham:  Southern Museum of Flight   A-7, A-12, AH-1, C-47, CH-54, F-4, F-14, F-84F, F-100, TF-102, F-104, F-105, F-111, H-13, L-39, Mig-21, O-2, OH-6,  S-2, T-2, T-28, T-33, T-38, T-39,  U-4, UH-1, Beech Starship, Cessna 310      November 2008


The museum itself is actually remote from the airport and is a residential neighborhood.  Inside are many fine displays and aircraft. 


The F-4, UH-1 and A-7 are all pylon mounted at the main musuem.


The A-12 and S-2 are many of the aircraft in an air park next to the Birmingham Airport.  It is secured so one needs to ask the Museum Director to have a museum employee take you into the air park.

Below are the rest of the aircraft located in the air park.


In an adjacent lot to the air park this F-84 is being prepared for display.


The TF-102 has a side by side cockpit arrangement.  I had never seen this before.


I believe these helicopters were being stored temporarily outside due to construction in the main display hangar.


The T-33 is an outside display.


Brewton:  Municipal Airport  April 2010


Daleville:  Cultural and Convention Center  UH-1 November 2008

Dothan:  Wiregrass Armed Forces Memorial   UH-1 November  2008  These photos were take very early on a foggy morning.


Enterprise:  Enterprise Recreational Complex  UH-1   November 2008 - Later the same day from above it was perfect picture taking weather.


Enterprise:   Shell Army Heliport   OH-58   November 2008 - This is part of the Ft. Rucker complex and is a OH-18 Kiowa training base.


Fairview:  Middleton Field - Auxiliary Landing Field for US Navy Training FJ-3, T-28  April 2010 - There was a Navy fire truck on site and a T-34C on the ramp along with several Navy personal and vehicles at the airport.

This OH-58 guards the main entrance to the Army Aviation Museum.


This AH-56 may be a one of a kind.


Another rare aircraft, the V-5 or XV-5.


Ft. Rucker:  North Gate  UH-1  November 2008 - This is at the gate that brings you into the base from Ozark on Alabama 85.


Ft. Rucker:    AH-1, OH-58  March 2011- These are located in front of a building just constructed in the past couple of years.  Google Maps currently shows the building under construction.


Hoover:   Army Reserve Center   AH-1   November 2008 - This is a suburb on the south side of Birmingham.


Huntsville:  US Space and Rocket Center  A-12, AQM-37, Nike Hercules, UH-1, V-1   November 2008  The F-14 is part of an air park that is bace behind the museum proper and part of the space camp.  There are more aircraft in the park but the gate was locked and I was only able to photograph the Tomcat from outside the gate.


Madrid:  Alabama Welcome Center one mile north of AL-FL state line on US231   UH-1   March 2011 - Madrid is the nearest town but a mile away.

Mobile:  USS Alabama  B-25, B-52, CH-21, F-4, HH-52, HU-16, Mig-17   April 2010 - The F-4 is a true Gate Guard as it stand out at the entrance to the USS Alabama park.  There is also an excellent inside museum and some other aircraft outside waiting on repairs after suffering damage after Hurricane Katrina.  A wall of water came up the bay and demolished many of the aircraft on display, necessitating repairs to all.  Unfortunately there has not been a lesson learned here by the museum as some day again another hurricane will again send a wall of water up the bay and again damage or destroy these national treasures.
