kids love to play on planes, and tanks, and boats…. playgrounds have been gifted with some cool stuff to please them accordingly

This pair of colorful ex-Soviet Army tanks are permanently caught in the crossfire, so to speak, in front of the Great Patriotic War Museum in Kiev, capital of the Ukraine.

This retired warrior was one of thousands of OT-62 TOPAS amphibious tracked armored personnel carriers developed jointly by Poland and Czechoslovakia and produced between 1963 and 1972. Now resting in peace at last, this basic variant of the OT-62 TOPAS has retired to the pastoral Benesov District of the Czech Republic’s Central Bohemian Region.

This USAF Lockheed T-33A “Shooting Star” ,Serial Number 53-5421,it is on loan to the Town of Los Gatos by the United States Air Force and it is located in the Oak Meadow Park. The aircraft has been in the playground area since July, 1974.

F7U Cutlass Fighter Jet in the Wheaton Regional Park Playground in the 1960s

a real Grumman F9F-2 Panther jet flown by the U.S. Navy in the 1950s, was originally installed in the park in 1960.

Air Force pilot Ted Tanner brought it to Costa Mesa more than 50 years ago.

“It was a hell of a deal,” said Tanner, who paid $1 to take the jet off the government’s hands. “I doubt I spent more than $500” to move the plane from a Tucson junkyard to Costa Mesa.

His service group, the Costa Mesa Exchange Club, bought the fighter jet used in the Korean War from the government in 1960 with the condition that they transform the plane into a playground landmark. His club refurbished it for the Lions Club Fish Fry parade weeks later, and installed it at Lions Park at 570 W. 18th Street that same year.

the Navy jets that kids got to play on, back when kids were allowed to risk a scratch or scrape out side the home, in the park.

From 1959 to 1993, Larsen Park hosted three different retired Navy jets, each donated to serve as imaginative play structures for the children of the Parkside District. The first was a Grumman F-9 Cougar reconnaissance plane from Squadron VC-61, driven up from Moffett Field in Mountain View with the cooperation of the California Highway Patrol and all the police department jurisdictions in between. The second jet, a Navy F-J Fury, replaced the Grumman in 1967. Both jets had ladders added to help kids climb into the cockpits. The third, and perhaps best-remembered jet, as it occupied the park for eighteen years from 1975 to 1993, was an F-8 Crusader.

But even though old-timers wish a real Navy plane could have been obtained, modern safety regulations and the prohibitive expense in taking on and remediating a real jet just made it impossible, even if the government had aircraft to give.

Also, San Francisco isn’t the Navy town it once was—many people object strongly to having an instrument of war in a public playground.

So now, something has been made to look the part, hopefully not just made of Nerf material, and the kids don’t really seem to mind the lack of authentic airtime.

But a Helicopter with blades? They’d go bonkers for a CH53 in the park, you just know it. Too bad the military wasted all those bombers and choppers in the graveyard in Arizona, instead of offereing them to public parks across the country for kids, and adults, to play in and on.
