Vultee BT-13 Valiant (3280)

Vultee BT-13 Valiant (3280)
Nicknamed the "Vultee Vibrator," this aircraft was flown during the second phase of pilot training by almost all Army Air Corps and Navy pilots during WWII. This was the first aircraft used at Merced Army Air Field, which was later renamed Castle AFB. It was also used at several other pilot-training fields in the San Joaquin Valley.
