Saw these 3

Post by Vista52 »

Photo was taken in Nevada this winter. The store was Military Surplus but looked like it had been closed a while. The Helicopter on the left is the remains of a USN H-21 Flying Banana. Have no idea what the other stuff is.

Hey Bud,

Yes, I thought seeing 3 hard-tops together was short of neat. What about those things on the pallet?

I think that rude looking Orange-tipped thing was for waste paper but I stand to be corrected :) .

Just eyeballing, I would guess 5", but they could as easily be 155.
