Photo Comment

This Bird Dog was built in 1952 to a 1951 USAF order and allocated the serial 51-12134. This was later represented as 0-12134 when the aircraft became more than 10 years old. This aircraft is thought to have gone to the Royal Thai Air Force, and from there to Australia. It was registered in Australia on 15 January 1997 and is currently, appropriately, VH-FAC(5). Seen here airborne for a display at the Houdini-Centenary Air Show.
