Fly the Texan – Columbus AFB
This vintage art deco style military aviation travel poster “Fly the Texan – Columbus AFB” is dedicated to all those who trained, flew, maintained or supported the T-6 Texan II at Columbus AFB.
Columbus Air Force Base is located approximately 9 miles north of Columbus, Mississippi. The host unit at Columbus is the 14th Flying Training Wing assigned to the Air Education and Training Command and their mission is to provide specialized undergraduate pilot training for U.S. Air Force and allied officers.
Columbus AFB was established in 1941 as Air Corps Advanced Flying School, Columbus, Mississippi and has been training Air Force pilots since World War II. About half the pilots in the Air Force today went through basic and primary flight training at Columbus, home to the busiest military air traffic control facility in the world.
