Grumman C-1A Trader
This carrier onboard delivery (COD) aircraft is one of two warbirds owned by Columbus’s Dr. Daniel Serrato. The Trader carried mail and supplies to aircraft carriers in the Pacific Ocean during the Vietnam War, and also served as a trainer for all-weather carrier operations.
North American T-28C
Dr. Daniel Serrato’s Trojan was the proto-type “C” model, built in 1954, and the first to land on the carrier USS Tarawa, in November 1955. With the advent of jet aviation, higher-powered aircraft were needed to train new pilots and the T-28 filled that role well. The T-28 was used by the various branches of the U.S. Military from 1950 into the 1970s.

Brits in the Valley Car Club
Brits in the Valley was established in 2015 after a few friends with vintage British cars recognized the need for such an organization in the Columbus area. The informal group has grown to more than 40 members throughout the Valley, representing more than 35 British cars. On a monthly basis, you can find this group either on a drive to Pine Mountain, wrenching on cars at a tech session, or attending a car show – such as this one in which their own vehicles will be on display at Columbus Airport!
