The fiberglass replica Douglas A-4 Skyhawk at the George T. Baker Aviation School, across LeJuene Road from Miami International Airport, has been shown in a previous post though an HU-16 Albatross nose section has recently been added. It sits atop a trailer and is an authentic nose and, in its orange and white USGS livery, is quite a sight to see.
