Our Aircraft's History:
Manufacturer's S/N AA5-0107

Our AA-5 was manufactured in 1972, after American Aviation was purchased by Grumman Aerospace. At some point in it's life, it was purchased by Roger Palmer, one of the founding members of Butler County Warbirds. Nicknamed "Ruby," Roger made a gift of this aircraft to Butler County Warbirds shortly before he passed away in 2003. We are continuing to maintain it, using it for fundraising rides, and honoring Roger's memory and his love of flying.
