First flown in 1935, more than 15,000 of these iconic warbirds were produced and served in air forces around the world as late as 1995.  The T-6G was a rebuild of 2,068 early model AT-6/T-6s (1949-1953) with improved cockpit layout, increased fuel capacity, steerable tailwheel, updated radios and a 600hp engine.  The Joint Service Open House and Air Show has been held yearly at Andrews AFB since the 1950s, and switched to a biannual schedule in 2012.  Andrews is the home base of two Boeing VC-25A aircraft with the call sign Air Force One when the President is on board.  Nikon D300 w/300mm, processed with Aperture.
