YF-23 wind tunnel model

Do I was in the St Louis ‘burb of Bellefontaine Neighbors today and there is a public park in the corner of a shopping center. I notice a model airplane on a 15 foot pole.

I recognize it as an F-23 Advance Tactical Fighter. The plaque says it was dedicated to the community in 2001 by Boeing (McDonnell Douglas) and the model had 14000 hours of work into it. Cool unexpected find.


Plus a find later in the day.
