 Gate Guards, Outside Museum Displays and Air Parks

Gate Guards, Gate Guardians, or Planes on Pole are a few or the monikers that describe the aircraft one will see sitting in front of various veterans' organizations, at the main gates or inside military bases, outside of museums, and other unexpected locations, such as a former Navy A-7 Corsair II on the front lawn of a high school in Ohio because the school's nickname is "The Aviators".  I have taken on this task after my research determined there was no web page dedicated to the photo-documentation of these aircraft that sit out in the elements, subject to the corrosion the weather causes and also damage perpetrated by vandals. 


This F-4 Phantom is located at at the Corona, AZ American Legion Post 109.  Photo taken May 12, 2009.
