For over twenty years The Collings Foundation has recovered and restored many of the true landmark aircraft that built world aviation history. Aircraft from the very roots of aviation up until the supersonic jets of modern day are represented in the collection which spans nearly 80 years of powered flight. Many of the aircraft are viewable to the public at airshows, events, and airports around the United States
The North American AT-6 Texan won wide acclaim as one of the most well used advanced trainers not only during WWII but also beyond. Our AT-6F Texan is a perfect example of this post WWII use as it is restored as and is painted in the colors of the Korean War "Mosquito", a low-level support and target identifier aircraft used to support the faster jets of the period.
