Hwy 41 Plane Nose Down Into Gas Station Roof

Postby Lost Fresno » Tue Apr 10, 2018 11:52 am

Most of us have passed the old AirGas gas station near Caruthers many times. Then it was a Beacon but now called the Quick Stop Mini Mart. I'm sure the thinking back in the 1950's was that you needed something eye catching along the Highway to pull you in. It sure caught my eye everytime I passed it.

I also remember a B17 bomber parked on the ground directly next to a gas station on busy Highway 99. I haven't been able to find a photo on mention of that one as of yet.
