NAS Alameda, California

Photos from Thomas (Tom) Phillips

Here are five photos taken this morning at the old NAS Alameda. After 2-1/2 years of volunteer restoration work on the A-4, which had blown over in a windstorm, it was to be put back on the pedestal. Not only did it get dropped a few feet onto the pedestal but also the crane tipped on its side and the whole arm fell on the plane. The bottom photo is what it is now.
