I think I spotted a couple of changes for you while looking at Martin State Airport.

First up is that the HU-16 at the top really looks like a C-130 on satellite view and Streetview  :wacko:  https://goo.gl/maps/8XooYLMxK3o4AU247

Down on the east side near Lynbrook Road past the gatehouse is an A-10 Thunderbolt. https://goo.gl/maps/gQCuZL2zmpVGdY9X6

Updated and pictures added at Martin State.  The F-86 is still there.  Wonder where the Albatross is?  Spottingmode has updated their info too, just last week, and says it is moving to a new, unknown site.

We now have 11000 sites on the map!  1885 museums, 8012 gate guards and other preserved planes, and 1103 miscellaneous (memorials, etc.) I figure we have almost all the museums in the world (there are always a few more) and about half of the display planes.  Give me a few more years to add the rest...

Thanks for your support.  Please keep posting your museum and preserved plane finds.

A little oddity I spotted in London yesterday outside an EasyJet / EasyBus / EasyFood warehouse. Looks like the tail of a Boeing 737! https://easy.com/easyland-gets-new-exhibit/

This is also a Boeing 737... wonder if it's the other half of the Easyjet one?

You may already have this one, but the information could be useful

Article refers to a Blenheim, but the pic on the memorial stone looks like a Beaufighter to me.
