I wonder if it'll open up with the low temperatures we have now.

This historic 1952 military aircraft - a Boeing KC-97 aka the "Flying Ambulance" - was used to transport casualties from the Korean War back to the West Coast of the United States. Today it is parked outside the Medford, Oregon airport - an imposing piece of airborne metal machinery that will fly no more. I happened to be driving past, saw it, and promptly pulled over to take a few photos.

I'm posting a few more monochrome images of the plane in the Documentary section too, which I actually prefer to the colour one.
