Yellow Valiant Cowling

I only had about an hour to visit the 1940 Air Terminal Museum at Hobby Airport for their monthly Wings and Wheels day this past weekend. They had a few planes from the Houston Wing of the Commemorative Air Force join them this day. There was a good size crowd, which meant that I had to wait to get wide shots without a lot of people in them. So while I waited, I practiced looking for the details that made these planes special.

Below, the engine of a Vultee BT-13 Valiant stands out against the summer sky with the Hobby Airport tower in the background. “The Valiant was an American World War II-era basic trainer aircraft built by Vultee Aircraft for the United States Army Air Corps, and later US Army Air Forces.” Wikipedia The BT-13 was later replaced by the popular AT-6.
