The historic aircraft is now suspended above the exhibition galleries.

One of the Bullock Texas State History Museum's largest and most notable artifacts, the North American Aviation AT-6A "Texan" airplane, took flight once more this week in Austin. Reassembled from individual sections previously on display on the third floor of the museum, the iconic World War II-era, single engine aircraft now soars over the three-storied exhibition atrium in a stunning display of airforce might.

Pig Stand #41

The Pig Stand No. 41 on Calder Avenue in Beaumont is no more. Tuesday, Oct. 11, heavy machinery knocked down what remained of the historic establishment.

The iconic landmark was built in 1941, but has been shuttered since 2006. In 2010, the Society for Commercial Archeology added the Beaumont landmark to its list of the 10 most endangered roadside places in the United States after its new owners announced their intention to demolish the building and construct a convenience store.
