Mike. The Midland AAF book is indeed full of great AT-11 images. I will definately capture and use a few of these in our Carlsbad Army Air Field Wall Facebook page. Midland was not too far from Carlsbad and I know at least one grad from CAAF that after flying 35 missions over Europe,m was assigned as a bombardier instructor at Midland AAF. He later was transfered to Carlsbad Army Air Field and was one of the elite bombardier instructors chosen to teach the Chinese.
Thank you for all of your work here and sharing what you do!
Keep 'Em Flying!
