BQM-34 at White Sands

In September 2016, a friend visited the 'Missile Park' at the White Sands Missile Range Museum, and made a small photo report of the museum's Firebee. The identity of this Firebee is not known. It appears to be a box-standard target J69 engined Firebee.

In December 2023, Bryan Wilburn visited the White Sands museum, and made three photos. Bryan reported that the Firebee is not configured for ground launch, and indeed it lacks the rear brackets on the parachute cone for the JATO unit. Bryan also mentioned that the museum uses latex house paint on the display items, as it stands up better to the merciless desert sun.
