Really nice OV-10 Bronco arrived at FTW yesterday. I'm hearing it went down to the Cold War Museum.

That's the one from Chino that was restored by California Aerofab.

Today was a really "good airplane day" in Fort Worth!

At KAFW:
Blue Angels practicing for this weekend's air show... zoom!
4x USAF AT-6 doing their landing break
Stearman entering the pattern

At KFTW:
Stinson Reliant takeoff
2x USAF AT-6 landing
F-16 cruising by
OV-10D Bronco taxi out, take off, a couple of passes, land, taxi in... neato!
We launched Randy Ball's MiG 17F this afternoon to head to KAFW for the air show... rockin'!

The Alliance Air Show is this weekend. VFM will have several aircraft on display. Y'all come out and see us!

I think he meant the Veteran's Air Park and Vintage Flying Museum at FTW. CWAM was at Lancaster (LNC).

Wings Over Houston is here this weekend. I was away from the neighborhood for the past couple of days but was keeping an eye cast toward Ellington hoping to catch the F-4 yesterday. No joy. Overcast day tho. Saw the Thunderbirds later in the afternoon today but no other traffic. I musta been on the "in" part of my errands at the durndest times... :? Weather is great, sunny and cool, but with a warmup to mid 80's Sat and Sun.. :D

VFM and the "Cold War Museum" are separate organizations. Honestly, after working in the VFM hangar for 5 years, I dont know the true name of the other museum or have even been down there. Driving by, they have a lot of cool stuff!!

When the Bronco arrived, it looked like it was gonna park on our ramp, they took a hard right on a narrow airport access road down to the Bronco-fest.

Tried to get a pic, kinda busy trying to rid the B24 of an electrical gremlin...

To set the record straight...
The (now closed) Cold War Air Museum was at Lancaster, TX. Along with VFM, the other museum at Fort Worth Meacham Airport is the Fort Worth Aviation Museum. They are just south of VFM on a separate plot of land. They host the OV-10 Bronco Ass'n and the Veterans' Memorial Airpark. FWAM used to share our facility until their collection grew to the point where they needed their own place. They have a great collection of aircraft from the Cold War era through modern times.

Passing by Fort Worth Alliance Airport today, I saw one of ATAC's Dassault Mirage F.1 aggressors on final approach. First time I've ever seen a F.1 flying! Neato!
