In 1942 the Columbus Army Flying School was established. From 1946 until 1950 the base was inactive but between 1951 and 1955 it re-opened and graduated 7,412 new pilots. T-6G Texan 49-3477 MSN 168-611 was delivered to the USAF on July 12, 1951. In August 1951 the aircraft served with the 3302nd Pilot Training School until July 1952 when it was sent to the 3301st PTS in Columbus. In November 1953 the aircraft was put into storage and eventually sold to the Royal Hellenic Air Force in 1958.

North American T-6G Texan

Designed as an entry for a 1937 USAAC "Basic Combat" aircraft competition, the T-6 was first flown on April 1, 1935. Several hundred T-6s were built before the advanced trainer designation, when it was modified for its role as a basic combat trainer. Nicknamed "the pilot maker," the Texan had low cantilever wings and a long two seat cockpit, with the engine mounted at the extreme forward. It trained thousands of USAF pilots through the 1950s and remained in service with some nations well into the 1990s. More than 15,000 T-6s were manufactured, and the aircraft remains a familiar air show presence, with 350+ airworthy examples still in existence.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale T-6 Texan is constructed almost entirely from diecast metal, which gives the model a heavy feel. The large bird cage style canopy is removable for an unobstructed view of the pilot and co-pilot, pad printed instrument panels, control stick and seat. Engine details such as pushrod housing and cylinder head cooling fins can be seen inside the engine cowling. The solid metal wing features simulated landing lights, correctly replicated pitot tube and separately-applied aileron bell-crank levers. Releases in this series include an improved-visibility canopy with fewer frames and machine gun pods under each wing.
