How about a MiG-17?
Yes, it's real. The guns are missing but the avionics, ejection seat and turbine are all still there.
Welp, a couple years later I found myself in the same part of the Dallas Metroplex during daylight hours with no time commitments - so I dropped in on the Lim-5/MiG-17F. Pictures are of course clickable for higher resolution, etc.The story is that it was bought by the lady when she was touring Europe looking for things to sell in her antiques store. She spotted the MiG in a Norwegian museum and bought it cheap. If it?s out there much longer, the original Polish markings will probably start ?bleeding through? the silver paint and pseudo-Soviet Air Force markings.
Specifically, it's the oldest surviving example of the Polish version of the MiG-17F, called the Lim-5. Most obvious identification point is that it only had one 23mm cannon supplementing the 37mm cannon instead of two like most versions did.
Unfortunately, the lady that owns it is just going to let it rot there.
That needs to go in @CraigB thread!This probably belongs in the Best (or worst) of Ebay, but it's in Dallas, so I'm posting it here...
