There is a movement to save one of Amon Carter's oldest known piece of aviation legacy and a part of the history of Fort Worth.  Someone suggested that I post this link to a FW Weekly article on the plane and the efforts to save it.

The same individual has made a video while he was inspecting the airplane.  The Video can be found here:

Good luck to them. Fort Worth has a strange tendency to neglect it's aviation history. (See also "Chuckie" the B-17)
