The featured warbird for the Fall season is the mighty SNJ, also known as the AT-6 Texan. Eighty years ago, young British airmen began to arrive at Falcon Field to begin their flight training as World War II raged in Europe. They received their basic and advanced training in the AT-6 ‘fighter trainer’ before they moved up to warplanes like the Spitfire or Mosquito to go into combat against the Nazis.
Museum exhibits depict the inspiring story of 100 years of military aviation from when powered flight first began, to the jet age in a collection of unique exhibits and artifacts.
