Pretty ratty condition, as is the case of a lot of equipment simply set out in the elements. Still, you don't see a lot of Flak guns sitting all ready to go.

I don't think I've ever visited the Texas Air Museum the times I've been through Slaton. Always tend to think of it as home to one of the Iron Horses of the Santa Fe Trail that pas put to pasture there. One of the big 2-6-2s, I think one of the same class as the 2020 that pulled Death Valley Scotty on the Coyote Special part of its record run from LA to Chicago in what was it - 1905?

The gun is in better condition then the picture shows. We have started sandblasting it so that we can repaint it and then it will go inside for display in a diorama. The legs still pivot, the leveling jacks turn freely,the gun rotates and the spades are original.

We have a Type 95 75mm artillery piece (pictures are in the Japanese Forum). We have on static display a F9F cougar, F4, F14, F101, F105, T2, T33 and A7 jets, a huey and cobra helicopter, Gemini and Apollo training capsules. Flying aircraft are Taylorcraft BC-12D and L2, and a Stintson Reliant AT 19. In restoration is a FW109F-4 which flew in North Africa (Black 9 which flew with the 5th staffel of JG27), a T6, and a NA 64
