The last one - N341A - left Oakland, CA for Rock Springs, WY at 21.25 BST. This is a flight of 04.30 so looks like she is on her way East at last.
Interestingly, the one and only Dak designated as a C-41A.

Re: T-2A at Meridian

Thanks for the info. It must be the one on highway 39 that I took a piccy of, in bicentennial colours, back in 76. I logged it as "On a stick near Meridian". I see that scramble has it as "on roof of Toyota garage". I've now found it on google maps... https://www.google.com/maps/place/John+O'Neil+Jo...

Can anyone confirm the serial of this T-2A at Meridian, in the late 70s, please?

http://rickmorganbooks.com/uploads/3/4/ ... 6_orig.jpg

Possibly 147522, which scramble has marked as being as preserved at Meridian?

Thanks

Aha... I'm now wondering if it's an early morning arrival, rather than late afternoon. Your memory is obviously a lot better than mine!

A shame the pics aren't better quality.
