The last flying CF-101B Voodoo also known as the EF-101B Electric Voodoo now on a stick at CFB NorthBay Ontario. I took this shot back in June of this year before flying onto the UK for RIAT.

That Voodoo sure looks nice! I'd loved to have been able to see one fly.

Here is a T-37 at the entrance to Bartow Municipal Airport in Florida. Bartow used to be a training base before it converted to a civilian airport.

I caught up with quite a few in Spain, mostly Mirage F1s. There's a lot around Albacete!

One of two Bo-105s outside of the Airbus Helicopters Delivery Centre:

The gate guard just inside the gates of the Military complex at Albacete (a quick shot 'n' go - the authorities can be a bit funny with 'togs):

And the gate guard at a race track, the other side of town:

And this, on a roundabout near the CASA 212 base (I forget the name) about three quarters of an hour west of Murcia which, reportedly, hasn't been there long:

This MiG-19 was a war memorial outside the 4th TsBPiPLS HQ in Lipetsk town centre......

Love these shots. We put flower beds and seat belt reminders on our roundabouts Tommy... :tumbleweed:

Flicking through some old shots, and found this previously unedited delight which is hidden from public view at Latina airbase.

Couple of others from Latina:

And a couple of others from a nearby zoo/museum

Not so much "on a stick", but it probably fits the bill (interestingly, unless I'm mistaken, this is also the world's only surviving EC-119G?):
