This is a MiG-23 just outside Baker, FL in the Florida Panhandle north of Eglin at a steel junkyard.

Easy to see it from the street, have driven past it many times.

That’s how I found it.  
Literally slammed on my brakes as I drove by it to go back and look.

This might have been posted here in BO previously. This is one of my favorites google finds near Hooks, TX outside of Texarkana. F-111 at an Army Navy surplus store.image.thumb.png.1f1ad69349ce8553426c095d3db8f8e9.pngimage.thumb.png.d6da529c5330f6ff80cb193c0e97886b.png

Heres a 747 at a park near Jakarta Indonesia. I found this when I was doing searches for aircraft used as housing or restaurants. I wanted to buy an old plane and convert it into a guest house. The logistics of getting it to my farm in TN was going to be challenging (read very expensive).image.thumb.png.bac4e10fad9eb4afb3c49e0ab50ab109.png

8 Hercs embargoed at the LM Marietta plant. Built for Libya back in 80s and never delivered. 0 hours, but may need new tires.

Unfortunately this photo was taken when the leaves were still on, otherwise you'd see a bunch more planes.  Used to fly over this all the time in college.  I'm fairly certain there was part of a B-36 fuselage there in the early 2000s.  

 

The Soplata Airplane Sanctuary.

More Pics.

Google adjusts the foliage depending on the time of year.  You'll probably get a better view in Dec.
