a lot of that would be looking good in museums, but at the time it was just excess equipment and a lot of it was obsolete due to the jet engine.

Absolutely, I remember seeing pictures of RNZAF Mosquito fuselages being sold for scrap and burnt.

My dad was telling me that farmers in Vermont after the war were buying surplus Gliders, still in original crates, for the wood in the crates. Trashed the Gliders.

Similar things happened here, obsolete aircraft were purchased by farmers for the pipework and wiring which was used for farm machinery repairs.
