41-9451 -- 877 -- Long Term Project

41-9451 Beech construction number (c/n) 877. N320A 15th AT-11 built, earliest know survivor. Currently being meticulously restored by the CAF Lobo Wing at Moriarty, NM. Restoration is headed by Col. Scott Witschger and Col. Frank Gasperich. Update on 8/10/13 by wing leader Gasperich: The rare aircraft is slowly coming together after years of sub- system rebuilds, re-skinning of some major panels and complete spar stripping, painting and x-ray. This Kansan will undoubtedly be one of the nicest restorations of any Twin Beech.  The Lobo Wing web page with prior progress is: http://www.lobowing.org/projects/at-11-project/

41-9486 -- 912 -- Flying.

41-9486, c/n 912, N214CR. Manufactured in Aug of 1941 and delivered in Feb of 42. The FAA registration lists it (and some others) as a 1958 for when they were sold to the civilian market. It served in Victorville throughout WWII and was probably flown by the Women Air Service Pilots, as they also flew AT-11s out of Victorville. After its role as a bomber trainer, 41-9486 flew for 2 aerial survey and mapping companies before its road to being restored back to a more original configuration. Now owned by Fran and John Hess and based in Fayetteville, GA. http://www.at-11beech.com
