Arcadia is a small town in Florida with an old style downtown and a nice park near its western town limit by the Peace River. The park has had a display of a Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star for as long as I remember but it suffered a bit from Hurricane Charley in August 2004. Charley impacted much of Florida’s peninsula and it collapsed Arcadia’s historic water tower and tore the canopy from the T-33.
I passed by there in May 2010 and noticed the canopy had not been replaced but the old bird still shows her style by not rusting or crazily tilting. Here are a few photos:
This aircraft can easily be seen while driving on State Highway 70 (Oak St in Arcadia) where it intersects S Baldwin Ave.
