The Vought V-173 was a proof-of-concept test article for the development of a U.S. Navy shipboard fighter (the XF5U) that would be able to operate at low takeoff and landing speeds while still being capable of high-speed flight for combat operation. Visit The Frontiers of Flight Museum and Love Field in Dallas Texas and see more historic aircraft.

We flew into the Cedar Mills Airport (3T0, 3,tee, zero), located on Lake Texoma which has a (nice) 3000' east/west grass runway. We had a great lunch at the Pelican's Landing Waterfront Restaurant, which is about a 10 minute walk overlooking the harbor. Great food!
The Hangar Hotel is in Fredericksburg, Texas. For more info, go here: http://www.funplacestofly.com/funflydetails.asp?id=457 A great (fantastic) place to fly and spend the night. Rent a car or take a shuttle into town for even more fun and frolick. Food, shopping, museums and more! The Airport diner has wonderful food and atmosphere. Step back into the past during WWII and relive what is was like then.
We took a great tour of this wonderful museum. It's great way to spend the day and walk through history. 4572 Claire Chennault, Addison, TX 75001. Addison Airport (ADS). Phone: 972-380-8800. Hours: Mon-Sat: 9am-5pm, Sun: 11am-5:00pm. http://www.cavanaughflightmuseum.com/
