A while back I posted a 'colourised' B&W print of another Imperial Airways HP42 on a refuelling stop in Jordan in 1931.

I knew that Croydon airport ceased to exist decades ago and had largely disappeared under suburban concrete, but what I didn't know was that the airport buildings are still there in the middle of an industrial estate.

That's pretty neat.

We have a lot of closed airfields in the US but I think they tend to be way out in the boonies where re-purposing is hit or miss.

At the local Habitat for Humanity, they take donations and sell them. Today I drove by and saw a pair of airplane wing frames stacked outside.


WEIRD.

A good way to get killed?

Probably a security violation just to look at it.

I think it might be a MiG 15 exhibited at Air Zoo Aerospace & Science Museum, Kalamazoo, MI.

It appears to have been operated under the civil registration of N621BM at one point.

Admittedly the engine looks a little long vis-a-vis the fuselage but it may be an illusion.

Could be the MIG but the wings look different. The end shape could be angle of the photograph but the struts coming over the top of the wing look different.

Looking at both I think you're right about being a MIG, maybe a different one.

Two things sent me in the MiG direction.
One was the old Soviet red star marking outboard of the wing fence, and the second was the fences themselves.
Also, note the antenna by the rear of the cockpit blister at an angle to the fuselage top line; it's the same in both pictures.
Admittedly I'm not 100% sure, but find myself firmly in the 'it'll do for the minute' category.

Aha fences, I didn't know what they're called. Makes perfect sense, thank you.

I'm not seeing much resemblance between the top airplane and ol' 1621.
Wing angles and their sculptured top surfaces (fences) are different as are the overall proportions.
That huge engine wouldn't fit I think.
Looking forward to more discussion.
