THE TEXAS AIR MUSEUM, SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS: A smaller Museum, however the Exhibits include a wide range of Aircraft types, of particular note were the excellent Biplane and Triplane types.

AIRCRAFT EXHIBITS: Limited space and limited exhibits, nevertheless the Biplanes and Triplanes were a highlight.

CURTISS MODEL D 'PUSHER': The United States Congress authorized the U.S. Signal Corps to purchase Aircraft for the U.S. Army in the early 1900's. A Curtiss Model D carrying designation S.C.2. commenced testing at Fort Sam Houston, Texas in 1911. The Test Pilot crashed the aircraft, it was repaired and served as a Trainer until 1914.

 

1910: AVRO Mk IV - TRIPLANE 'REPLICA': Englishman, A.V.Roe designed and manufactured four Avro Triplanes, Mk I~IV. The original Mk IV was used as a Trainer at Brooklands, the aircraft was wrecked and repaired many times. The original Mk IV was powered by a 35hp four cylinder water cooled Green engine. The Museum's exhibit is an 80% scale replica manufactured in San Antonio, Texas.
