CAF Mississippi Wing Adds PT-19 WWII Trainer

Contest To Name Aircraft Underway

The Mississippi Wing of the Commemorative Air Force acquired a PT-19 (primary trainer). This aircraft was built in 1943, during the World War II. Although the aircraft was brought to the wing from Nacogdoches, Texas, during the war the aircraft was stationed in Meridian, Mississippi.
