Neglected Yard of WWII Planes

These are all S-2 Trackers, an anti-submarine plane used by the U.S. Navy from 1952-1976. Looks like he has nine of them parked on the lot.

Neglected Yard of WWII Planes

Ah, I might be wrong, but just by looking at the pics I think they are actually Korean or Vietnam era aircraft. Wings are folded to make storage on carriers easier and the U.S. didn't have aircraft that big on carriers during WWII.

Old planes.

Neglected Yard of WWII Planes

A bunch (9 or 10) of old WW2 planes with fold up wings. They're on private property but you can drive right up to the fence and see them.

We're used to seeing old prop planes parked on weed-choked airport tarmacs, but this is more like someone's backyard lot.
