Photo Comment

The AT-11 was the standard USAAF WWII bombing trainer, with about 90% of the more than 45,000 USAAF bombardiers trained on AT-11s. This example, on display at the National Museum of the USAF, is one of 1,582 ordered by the USAAF between 1941-1945 and is painted to represent a trainer in service during the autumn of 1943.
