The Museum’s A-26 Invader is painted to match the original “City of Santa Rosa” that Willis Tupper flew during the Korean War. He recently passed away at age 93, and his family got together at PCAM to honor his memory. They paid a special visit to our A-26, undergoing restoration in the Butler Hangar.

Please note that this is not the original City of Santa Rosa that Willis Tupper flew, but one painted to match his in memory of his service.
