    This is simply the best site for high quality vintage USAF photographs I have ever seen.
    As a student of this era I have to say the material is an inspiration.
    Keep up the good work……JW

    These a/c not stored at Luke! They were at DMAFB in Tucson where they were scrapped.

      Mr. Menard, you are correct. That particular mountain range is near Tucson. Serial numbers also indicate DMAFB, as well.
