Texas-Based A-26 Readied for Show Season

Texas-Based A-26 Readied for Show Season

The Commemorative Air Force’s A-26 Invader Squadron, based within the Vintage Flying Museum’s hangar at Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, Texas, has spent the winter month’s working hard on its Douglas A-26B Invader 41-29427.

The squadron began life in 2009, with the specific objective of getting the A-26 airworthy. Following years on the air show circuit as “Spirit of Waco,” the aircraft was in real need of a lot of attention. The group got her back in the air again in 2012 with help from Ezell Aviation, but as everyone in the warbird world knows, there is often much more to do once an aircraft is flying again.

The aircraft is now back on the air show circuit, but during the off-season, the team in Fort Worth make the most of the down-time to progressively work through areas of the aircraft which need extra TLC.
