Satellite View

Noodling around the satellite view in Google Maps for interesting driving routes to and from the general Philadelphia area, I detoured the camera south for an aerial look at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds just across the state line.

There on the grounds of the proving grounds is Phillips Army Airfield, which has an interesting little boneyard in its southwest corner.

There are a bunch of A-7's, C-12's, U-8's, all manner of helicopters, a lonely C-123, various other stuff, and...hello...what's this?

Pretty sure that's a Mi-24, Mi-2(?), a few MiG-21's, and something pointy-nosed and single engined and about the length of an Mi-24, so maybe a MiG-23?

Pretty cool!
