M50 @ Cavanaugh Flight Museum, TX
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

This M50 is in a corner of a hanger at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison, TX.

The placard lists the serial # as 17091.

I don't think it is listed in the Neil's AFV register.

Enjoy!

Some detail shots.

The high-angle shots are courtesy of my wife. Her camera has an articulated LCD that makes it easier to compose the shots. She can actually see what she's shooting!

The gun and the Cummins diesel engine. Look closely at the rear engine deck. It's an Israeli conversion.
