Hangar 25 Visit

On Friday, May 18th, Bill Coombes, Paul Cooper and I, visited the Hangar 25 Museum in Big Spring to do some archival research about “our” AT-11.  Unfortunately, we weren’t able to find any documentation relevant to her, but we did get some information about items and suppliers for our up-and-coming PX.
