Today the "Redbird Squadron" of the CAF had a chance to roll out the Taylorcraft L-2 and take some photos as we try and get some things rolling at Dallas Executive.

We are looking to recruit a few more pilot / sponsors, so if you know of someone in the DFW area that's tailwheel endorsed and interested in an entry-level warbird, tell them to look us up, or send me a PM.

during the Second World War. We will also share specifics about our Taylorcraft L-2A “Grasshopper” and how it relates to the historical events that took place 75 years ago over
France. Lunch will be served for a donation and costumed reenactors will be present to help interpret the displays. This is a “hands-on” event. The presentation will be geared towards
middle-school youth and up.

Looks like a great event.

Love the "L" birds, I'm always impressed when a museum has a complete set.

Hopefully we'll also have an L-5 in attendance. Would REALLY like to find an L-4 to come. The CAF doesn't have one nearby. Anyone know of a good L-4 in flying distance of Dallas?
