Don Schmenk's T-28 model display, donated in 2009 by the Trojan Horsemen commemorating the 60th anniversary of the T-28.
Paul Walter shows Jason "Boner" Griffin the T-37 cockpit simulator that he helped acquire for AHC. Paul owns the only flying civilian T-37. It is an award winning aircraft that he displays at EAA's Air Venture every year. Paul also serves on the Advisory Board of AHC and flies his T-28C for the Trojan Horsemen's airshows.
The Center recently acquired a T-28 cockpit simulator, with the help of Paul Walter. It is one of only two in existence. Dave Rudd, (pictured with the sim) who is also President of AHC, spent many hours refurbishing and painting it. Dave is in the process of getting more instruments to complete the panel. The simulator provides a unique hands on experience for people to be able to climb into the cockpit, get the feel of sitting in a warbird and taking the controls.
From concept to reality, the T-28 Exhibit draws worldwide attendance educating the public on the role of the Hmong Chao Kha Phao pilots had during the Secret War in Laos.
