Lobo Wing projects
The AT-11 is a WWII bombardier trainer. Our particular AT-11 was stationed in Albuquerque during 1941 and 1942 and was used extensively for training. We acquired this aircraft in 2002 and moved it from Michigan to New Mexico. It is now undergoing restoration at our Moriarty restoration facility.
The Wing acquired this Link Trainer in December, 2004 and it now resides in our restoration facility awaiting a much needed restoration. This is a very exciting project and an incredible piece of aviation history.
The Wing spent twelve years restoring our 1942 Fairchild PT-26 Cornell. During that time, the Wing had to move the aircraft twice. Due to the closure of the Wing’s home airport, a major move to a cross-town airport was undertaken. As this was the Wing’s first major project, mistakes were made during the restoration process and many lessons were learned. These lessons will be applied to our next projects.
The Lobo Wing acquired a ramp scooter from the New Mexico Wing. This ramp scooter was built at the Hobbs AAF base during the 1940 — 1950 time frame. The scooter is constructed of spare parts from various aircraft including an APU or GPU that is used to power the unit. This scooter is currently being researched and restoration work has begun.
