F-106A 59-0137
Evergreen Aviation Museum, McMinnville, Oregon

F-106A 59-0137 was obtained by the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Oregon and on 18 May 2004 F-106A 59-0137, in its 49th FIS colors, was moved from storage at Davis Monthan's AMARC to the Pinal Air Park, Marana AZ area in preparation for disassembly and shipment to the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. In Feb 2005 work had still not yet commenced as they were still looking for main landing gears. The nose gear and a set of main wheels and brakes were on-hand, but they still needed the main gear before it could be shipped to Oregon. It sat at the Pinal Air Park in storage through at least 2007. In 2009 photos were take of 59-0137 repainted in its old 49th FIS Griffiss AFB NY markings as it sits on display at the Evergreen Aviation Museum, McMinnville, Oregon in Jun 2009. Main landing gears were found and installed, but a main gear brace had to be fabricated.
