Id really appreciate any kind of help from the forum on this planned model display. What have we missed, got wrong etc.

We have (or will have):

From published photos..

2 x MiG-17 (Have Drill & Have Ferry)
1 x MiG-21F (Have Doughnut)
Have Blue 1
Have Blue 2
YF-117A FSD '780'
Tacit Blue
BOP
Su-22 Ex-East German Air Force ( tiny photo in Popular Mechanics ??) - assumed no markings carried.
Mig-29 '661' - loan from German Air Force - assumed no markings carried, possibly 66 on fin tip.
A-12
M-21/D-21
B-52H & D-21
F-101 (A-12 Chase aircraft)
U-2 (The prototype)
Janet 737

Should we include a 4461HS/57 TTW Det 1 UH-1N ?

Speculative !

Mig-21MF Ex-Egyptian Air Force - assumed no markings carried, brown & sand striped camouflage.
Mig-23E Ex-Egyptian Air Force - assumed no markings carried (although would like to think they had a 'Bort number' and used with 4477 operations !). Sand, green & brown camouflage.
Mig-23BN Ex-Egyptian Air Force - assumed no markings carried. Sand, green & brown camouflage.
Mig-23MLD Ex-East German Air Force
Su-7 Ex-Egyptian Air Force - assumed no markings carried. Sand, green & brown camouflage. (now at Nellis AFB)
Su-17 Ex-Egyptian Air Force - assumed no markings carried (the British and the Germans got some so why not Groom Lake ?)
Su-27 Ex-Bellorussian Air Force - assumed no markings, blue grey colour scheme although some of their machines were grey & green.

We also have a Beechcraft Bonanza which happens to be blue and yellow - we don't know what the one looked like that Tony LeVier was in when he "discovered" Groom Lake


Too late to be included.

T-39 (fore runner of the Hanscom Gulfstream II & Dassault Falcon ?)
Gulfstream II
Dassault Falcon
F-104 Chase aircraft.
