Hello All..

Understand the A-20 that was in the Lone Star Museum is heading down under.. Anyone know who the lucky person is who purchased it??

According to the listing of A-20 survivors printed in issue 60 of Classic Wings, A-20J 43-21709 previously on loan to the Lone Star Museum was purchased by Steve Searle in late 2006 and will be operated out of somewhere in Queensland.

Thanks for the info Daniel.. Bill Beck, President of the 89th/3rd Assn was going to request to have it displayed at the Groups last Reunion that will be held next year in Texas.. He was disappointed, to say the least, when he heard of it's travel plans..
