REQ: Help Kissimmee 2005

Post by EGVP » Tue Nov 10, 2009 10:00 am

Hi all,
Seeing the post by GOOSE about Kissimmee has sparked a thought. My dad, mum and I had a family holiday in Florida in 2005, and visiting Kissimmee we noted what was left of Tom Reilly's collection after a lot of it was damaged in a massive storm. We were able to walk around and ID everything that was there, bar 1 aircraft, which as far as I can tell, has never been ID'd :(


There was an A-6, without wings, completley scrubbed down without any discernible marks (Having recently returned from a trip to Germany at that point, I was getting good at finding scrubbed off markings!). Does anyone know which this is, I don't think USAMOOS listed it at the time! :(


Any help very much appreciated!

Chris

I've looked through my black note books, USAMOOS and Ogdens, cant find any notes of any A-6s'. I was there in Jan 05 however Reilly was still there then. Maybe it moved in that year for a short period after he had gone.

This was August 2005, it was part of his collection, as we had to find him to ask for permission to take a look round :cool:

I'll scan in a photo later, might help? :) Just annoying as it's my last outstanding query from the trip! :grr:
