I was driving home up I39 from Terre Haute this morning, got off to fill up the tank on Il 17, and saw this in the lot right next to the BP station. At first I thought it was a Mig 17 or 19, but it’s an F84 Thunderstreak, if the name under the cockpit is accurate. It looks right from other pics I looked up.
I also found a reference to it in Roadside America.. No one seems to know where it came from or why it’s there. You can see that someone gave up maintaining the old paint scheme and just painted it what looks like Army Green. The RA site has it correctly identified (I think) at the top, and incorrectly so by the next 2 comments
There is s small sign behind the plane, but it was too damn small to read from the car and too damn cold to get out of the car. I opened the window just enough to stick out the phone and snap the pic of the plane. I thought I would find an explanation online, but no luck so far.
