A 1929 Command-Aire and a WWII Schweizer TG-3 Training Glider now call WAAAM their home.
The airplane count at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum is now up to 97 thanks to the addition of this 1929 Command-Aire. This breaking news was featured in our newsletter first. The unveiling to the general public did not occur until our June 8th Second Saturday. Just so everyone is on the same page now - a 1929 Command-Aire joins the team bringing our count to 97 airplanes!

With the increasing interest in flying,and pilot  training, Command-Aire introduced the model 3C3-T in May of 1929. Carrying ATC No. 150, thirty or more of this type were manufactured and sold for $1130 in 1929. La­ter in 1930, the price was reduced to $2250. The one elongated cockpit was quite roomy for two people seated tandem and was dubbed the "bath tub."
 
WAAAMs 3C3-T Bath Tub is the last of its kind. 

Also of note, this makes the 8th aircraft in the collection powered by the Curtiss OX-5. We think that's a record!

Our new World War II Schweizer TG-3 Training Glider took its time getting here but the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum is glad to have it. Aircraft 95 took its time getting here but we're glad to now be home to a WWII Schweizer TG-3 Training Glider.

About two months ago this last flying TG3 glider was purchased by WAAAM with funds donated to acquire a rare and flying aircraft. This is reported to be the last of the flying Schweizer TG3s.
 
Both airplanes will be flown when the airport opens back up.
