Gary Jansonius email@example.com just advised that he thinks that he has found what looks to be an R&D AGM 28B at the Tecumseh American Legion in Ok.
Is there anyone who is positive as to where the serial number is located? Seems that it was on the bulkhead inside the warhead compartment.
This particular missile is in "deplorable" condition and is missing the vertical stabilizer. It does appear to have the engine and many of the "guts" still attached.
Gary feels that he can acquire the missile and make it a "project" of restoration and is looking for any interest and assistance from our troops. His idea is to have it completed by the next reunion. Contact him if you feel you would like to help.
August 12, 2004. Gary has notified me that the Tecumseh American Legion has decided to donate their Hound Dog to him and our soon to be Airborne Missile Maintenance Squadron Association.
Gary is in the process of trying to find a vertical stabilizer and two wing tips. He is also looking for a trailer. So any of you troops out there who may know where these items can be acquired let him know. I know he is very anxious to get started on the restoration.
The current plans are to find a Museum location for the Hound Dog when completed.
August 20, 2004. Gary has named his Hound Dog restoration project: "Snoopy Comes Home" A fitting name for a Lost Dog.
Gary has located a trailer at a Gov't Liquidation site and a engine starter on ebay. He is real enthused about the project and he welcomes all the help he can get in locating the remaining missile parts.
