The Central Texas Wing hangar houses four CAF aircraft for which the Wing has maintenance and restoration responsibility: a very-rare flying P-39Q Bell “Airacobra”, the B-25 Mitchell “Yellow Rose”, a BT-13 “Valiant” and the U-3A "Administrator".
Two other CAF aircraft are housed with us, the CAF replica "Kate" #310 from the movies Tora, Tora, Tora and Pearl Harbor and the Bell P-63F King Cobra. Other aircraft in the hangar are privately owned by CAF members, and used to support the missions of the CAF. Among these are 4 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 a Lockheed T-33 "Shooting Star" jet trainer.
