Flapsin has it, G-BUCO is the ac and very pretty it is too. I'll post a picture when I'm not working off my phone.

Flapsin, you have control.

Kitbag,

What a lovely aircraft.

This one is not so lovely and FYI, it's not in the Sidney museum

Looks to be a Cessna 02 from the Vietnam era?

I42, beauty is in the eye of the beholder; I've always liked twin boom ac, including the O-2. Can't find a museum with red hangar walls

Any museum with a Bell Sioux can't be all bad!

Spooky 2,
Correct, it's an airworthy O-2. Easy to figure out, even after I had cropped the gauges that said Front Engine and Rear Engine!

Kitbag,
I didn't say it was ugly, I just said it wasn't as beautiful as the Aircamper. I had a flight in a 337P once - very nice to fly.
This O-2 is in the Heritage Flight Museum at Skagit Regional Airport, north of Seattle. They've only just moved there so there are probably not many pictures of their new home on the web yet. The museum was founded by Bill Anders - one of the Apollo 8 crew.

Heritage Flight Museum

Rosevidney1,
Well spotted. It's an airworthy G model, painted in MASH colours and currently grounded, pending the installation of a new tail rotor.

More pictures to come, when I catch up with my travelogue.

Spooky 2 has control.

It looks similar, but not identical, to an early Messerschmitt 109.

Kitbag,

You are correct - it's a 109 panel at Planes of Fame in Chino. It was labelled as a 109E and was standing against the wheel of an un-restored wreck from Russia. I didn't take a photo of the wreck, so I'm not sure if it actually was an "Emil".

You have control.

Many thanks I42, had to work a bit at that.

Heres something a little more modern (but not much)

An early model of a North American F-100 Super Sabre, specifically it is F-100A, #25-761, seen here decades earlier on a demonstration flight near Edwards/Muroc Test Area:

I wondered when you'd join in again. As usual you are correct, it currently resides at the New England Air Museum

There seems to be a placard for arrestor hook so lets try something along the lines of Curtiss SB2C Helldiver?

Douglas TBD-1 Devastator?

I'm only an occasional lurker, so in the unlikely event I fluked it - open house.
