Aircraft 425 at Peterson AFB was moved to a new location last summer (2001).  It rests on a concrete pad along with the rest of the museum collection.  A contractor removed the tail about two months ago.  My understanding is the tail is being shipped to Tinker for overhaul.  The elevators had holes corroded completely through.  The lower rudders were severely damaged about 20 years ago when the plane sat on its tail as the result of snow and wind.
