Sightings: Centennial of U.S. Naval Aviation "Yellow Peril" T-6B Texan at St. Louis Downtown Airport

By Carmelo Turdo
Visitors to the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum at St. Louis Downtown Airport today were able to view a very special aircraft - theT-6B (BuNo 166064) "Texan II" from VT-3 "Red Knights" of NAS Whiting Field, FL.  The aircraft is painted in the "Yellow Peril" Centennial of U.S. Naval Aviation paint scheme in salute to the primary training aircraft of the 1930-1950.  The aircraft was painted new at the Hawker Beechcraft factory in Wichita, Kansas.  Here is the aircraft at all angles as it was parked in front of the museum:
