Photo Comment

The L-2 was not used in combat or sent overseas during WWII, rather only used for liaison pilot training. This L-2M on display at the National Museum of the USAF is in reality 43-26592 but is painted to represent another L 2M based at Atkinson Municipal Airport in Pittsburg, KS during WWII.
