Cessna T-50     XB-DOF                      (c/n unknown)


                                   Introduced in 1939 as a light transport, the Model T-50 was adopted by the USAAC in 1940
                                   as a twin engined trainer.  It was also put into the 'utility cargo' category and over 4500 were
                                   delivered as either AT-17s and/or UC-78s.   Many hundreds were civilianized after WW II.
                                   My Mexican example was shot at Long Beach in 1961.   Most restored examples these days
                                   are now all doffed out as 'warbirds'.
