WOMAM — Wings Over Miami Air Museum update
Revisiting WOMAN is usually fun since, aside from the “regulars”, often there are visiting aircraft. The “visitors” are commonly there for overhaul, maintenance or restoration since there work is of high caliber. Visiting last week for what may be a last look of the much modified and now highly capable Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina of the Super Cat variety saw her on the apron looking a bit lonely with no neighbors. Ownership of the Super Cat has finally been resolved after a number of years and she will fly away to a new home sooner of later.
Two aircraft were getting serviced at the time. A Mooney M20K and a Van’s Aircraft RV-6 were undergoing work and the other aircraft in the hangar had been moved from their locations during the last visit. The F-14 Tomcat was back in the hangar (see the walkaround photos from when it was outside here and here).
Andrew was more than helpful at the museum as he is knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The almost rare NA-50 and perfectly restored and better than new AT-6 Texan are there as are aerobatic aircraft and others.
