Photo Comment

This rare Aero Commander arrived at the museum in 1988, in the US Army AVRADCOM markings it was last operated in. By the mid 1990s the museum had it repainted in fake and boring all-grey USAF markings, but fortunately they eventually saw the error of their ways and in 2008 it was restored in these original and very nice AVRADCOM markings.
