The third memorial was destroyed in the summer of 2016. A park of old steam locomotives at the station Bologna, between Khabarovsk and Komsomolsk-on-Amur. In 2014 at the station I saw 4 locomotives and Stalin's echelon of the Gulag. In 2016 they disappeared.

A unique arch for the locomotive route. Water-conducting arch in the village of Pivan, opposite the city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur. The road to this arch is now prohibited.

Most welcome. Glad you liked it.

Is there something specific you took from the article?
Do you have Friedman's book?

Just got the book and of course I went to the later chapters. Doesn't sound too keen on F-14/Phoenix  versus the Backfire. This article from Naval War College Review wasn't in the sources for the book.

He is more respectful of the Tomcat.

Here's one at the SDASM Flickr site that I can't put a finger on. Perhaps it is related to the Ryan 147 S-2?

Here's a swing-wing (airliner?) concept with the name "National" on the tail. Reminiscent of how the original National Airlines (NAL) used to have "National" on the S-duct of their Boeing 727 fleet and the base of the vertical stab of their two Boeing 747 aircraft.
