Overview

The Central Texas Wing hangar houses seven CAF aircraft for which our Wing has maintenance and restoration responsibility: the C-47 That’s All, Brother, a very-rare flying P-39Q Bell Airacobra, the B-25J Yellow Rose, a Beech C-45 Expeditor, a North American T-6, a BT-13 Valiant undergoing a frame up restoration, and a Cessna U-3A Administrator. Other aircraft in the hangar are privately owned by CAF members or CAF sponsor groups, and used to support the missions of the CAF. Among these are a T-6, a Japanese Kate replica, built for the movie Tora, Tora, Tora, and a Bell 47 Helicopter.

Great event with a car show on the tarmac and vintage planes right up close. The Central Texas Wing has retored several planes right here in San Marcos. You can see them working on projects right in the hangar.

Nice exhibits in the museum, this is a smaller museum with a limited number of planes but still worth a visit. Missed seeing ‘That’s All Brother’ which is being restored and will eventually be back.

We missed the leading DDay invasion plane which is slated to arrive in the fall! Great little museum (see pictures) and some nice air planes. Free too! Just outside San Marcos...
