I've no idea where this taken but this was the aircraft that was struck by lightning and crashed in 1963 :- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_Am_Flight_214

I've spent ages Googling possible airfields where it was taken but it's drawn a blank so far. I was at Syracuse airport in October 1981 and the photo seems like it was taken at a much bigger airfield.

I'm still looking for the serials of the 10 A-10s on the ANG ramp if anyone has them. :whistle:

In between the two F-86 on the right, there's an all red F-84G Thunderjet. There can't have been too many all red examples around which may identify the unit and hence, location?

that may be a target drone in that colour, about 80 were transferred to the US Navy as F84KX for use as drones in the late 1950s.

Page Aviation (as per Page on the hangar) was a company based at Rochester NY about that time but can't find much about them
