That's a great pic! Felix did start being used by the US bombing squadrons in the late 1920's / early 1930's but is usually associated with the VFA-31 squadron nowadays.

Thanks for posting!

That is very cool. We vistied the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola, FL last year and it was amazing. We'll have to look into this one in Kissimmee this year.

It's only a small museum at the municipal airport but they do have a couple of T6 Harvard's which one can rent with an instructor!! They also have a P-51 Mustang with Griffon powered engine driving contra rotating props from a Shackleton, they were planning to take this to Reno for the races.
