shameful treatment of it. it should be indoors and away from the sandblast effect of sitting in the desert... on sand

Hi Dave,
It's not sitting on sand. It's sitting on hard-packed dirt which is so hard it can't be dug with a shovel. it has to be dug with a pick.

Under the dirt (and sometimes on the surface) is caliche (external link): A sedimentary rock so hard it has to be dynamited to break it up. That is one reason why so many planes are stored out in the open in the Arizona desert: they never sink into the ground.

The plane is sitting at the Pima Air & Space Museum (external link) in Arizona. Arizona has dust storms, not sand storms, so there is no sand-blasting. The museum is literally across the street from the USAF 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group. (external link)

"The The 309th AMARG takes care of nearly 4,000 aircraft, which makes it the largest aircraft storage and preservation facility in the world. "

The biggest cosmetic problem is the sun bleaching the paint.

HTH.

Interesting airplane. The struts look like something developed for a ship and not for a plane


Advice, C&C welcome

It's a fighter seaplane that never saw production runs.
Certainly interesting.
here's a bit of blurb about it (external link)

Chino Planes of Fame Air Museum is home to this Seversky AT-12, that still flies at airshows and demos.

Did they used to list original or Doolittles Raiders crew names back when you were with the Yellow Rose? Sounds like a great time! Got some photos and/or stories you can share? We're all 'jonesin' for more warbird stuff!! :-D

No they only had the crewmembers names on the outside. We did go and were the only B-25 at the 50th Annv of the Doolittle Raiders. I met a lot of them there that were still with us. The best part about crewing The Rose was the Vet's who walked up and shared there experiences during the war.

We always told people to place the palm of there hand at the 6 O'clock position so that in the picture it would look like she is sitting on your hand and that you held her up. We did have one couple go around the other side and take a "comparison" picture.
