The Cactus Air Force Wings and Wheels Museum's aircraft collection is extremely impressive. In addition to this T-6, some other aircraft owned by the CAF Museum that were shown at the open house are a Grumman TBM-3E Avenger, a Cessna 0-2 Skymaster and 0-1 Bird Dog, a North American Rockwell OV-10A Bronco, a Bell AH-1 Cobra, and a Douglas A-26 Invader. And the CAF owns more than just those.

Great shot with a beautiful backdrop Gary! Even unpainted I think this Texan looks pretty good: not many planes can pull that one off.

A very nice shot, Gary!
