These photos show a Q-5 Kingfisher target drone on static display during an Armed Forces Day Open House in front of the Installation Headquarters Building. The Kingfisher was used as a ramjet research vehicle and supersonic target aircraft. The event appears to have included an air show, with three planes flying in formation above the display. The two original photographs have deteriorated in the decades since they were taken. This yellowing effect occurs as materials in the printing material itself start to fade. Although yellowing in photographs is generally irreversible, editing software can be used to restore the image and give viewers a sense of what the photo originally looked like. The two amazingly recolored photographs were digitally restored by author Kenneth P. Katz, who is researching the Kingfisher as a part of his upcoming book on American unmanned aircraft.
