Cemetery Jet

Visible from I-90, a Lockheed Martin F-94 Star Fighter on loan from the USAF Museum, which was used by the U.S. military during the Korean War. It's been parked here since 1959.

According to a report in the Erie News, the cemetery caretaker has received calls from several people over the years asking to be buried in the jet cockpit. Since it's on loan, the answer is no.
