CAF Centex Wing

The CenTex Wing hangar houses two CAF aircraft for which the Wing has maintenance and restoration responsibility: a very-rare flying P-39 Bell Airacobra, and the U-3A "Administrator". We have a tenant unit, The Yellow Rose Squadron of the CAF, which is responsible for maintaining and operating the B-25 "Yellow Rose". The CAF replica "Kate" #310 is always in the hangar, when not flying air shows with the "Tora, Tora, Tora!" group. Two other CAF aircraft are housed part-time with us, replica "Kate" #356, and the Bell P-63 King Cobra. The P-63 is currently undergoing major maintenance in the hanger. Other aircraft in the hangar are privately owned by CAF members, and used to support the missions of the CAF. Among these are 3 AT-6 Texan types, a Japanese Zero replica, built for the movie Tora, Tora, Tora, a Chinese-built CJ-6A trainer, the Beech T-34A Mentor, and outside on the ramp is a Lockheed T-33 "Shooting Star" jet trainer. Hour of operation are Monday-Wednesday-Friday and Saturday 9:00-4:00 No admission but recommended $3 donation to keep them flying!
