This plane is a memorial to Major Rudolf Anderson, native of Greenville, SC and Clemson University graduate. He was the only combat casualty of the Cuban Missile crisis.
When he was shot down, he was flying a U-2 spy-plane, but this is not a replica. It actually looks like a F-86 Saber fighter plane, the first plane Anderson flew for the US Air Force.

Greenville, SC is the most beautiful city I’ve ever lived in. From time-to-time I try to go downtown and take pictures. All these pictures were taken near the area around Main Street and Court Street.
