The former Gary Air Force Base east of San Marcos, Texas is now the San Marcos Municipal Airport. The non-hangar buildings belong to the Texas Job Corps program (and they don't let you in!). The only remaining original hangar now belongs to the Commemorative Air Force.

I stopped by there and was lucky enough to see them pre-flighting a Japanese Zero and Kate. Didn't get to stay to see them fly however. The Zero is a replica that was used in Tora! Tora! Tora! - remember the scene where they marvel at the new Zero with the folding wing tips?

Anyway... they were also changing the right landing gear on their B-25.

Here are some photos of the above aircraft.
