This camo F-100D is 56-3298. I was her crew chief at Nellis AFB, Nevada, in 1969. She stands as a gate guard at Nellis today. (Actually, another number aircraft painted as 3298.) Note from Larry "Brusface": 56-3298 crashed as QF 182 on 15 November, 1989, on a Nullo flight out of Tyndall. The aircraft was completely destroyed, so there wasn't much left of it. The aircraft at Nellis sitting on the pole carrying the 56-3298 number is actually 55-3595. Why they put 56-3298 on the aircraft when it is actually 55-3595 beats me. The 131 Mass ANG last flew 3298 and put it in storage in June, 1979. She was sent to Litchfield Park in October, 1984, for drone conversion.
