4) Martin B-26

Note the gravel of the earlier museum site. Hard to believe that the Boeing YB-52, the one with the long canopy like a B-47 on staroids, was displayed at this site until LadyBird Johnson -- as in President's WIFE Johnson -- complained that it looked ugly and it was cut up and melted down!
