About the CAF

The Lobo Wing is the Albuquerque, New Mexico based attachment of the Midland, Texas based Commemorative Air Force (CAF). The Wing flies and supports a 1942 Fairchild PT-26 Cornell and is restoring a 1941 Beech AT-11 Kansan to flying condition. We have a number of other interesting projects that you may view on the “Projects” page. Please roam around the site and learn more about the Lobo Wing. The Lobo Wing supports all of the objectives of the Commemorative Air Force.
