Does anyone know about this purchase, or more about Mr. Randal? I live in Tulsa and am very curious about his plans.

Hope he has good luck. It sounds really neat. Love that old terminal, bet it has some aviation artwork inside.

I can remember riding my bike out there in the late 60's and early 70's armed with a Kodak instamatic camera when they held the local EAA Fly-In in the fall. I recall seeing some rare planes like the Boeing 247 and a Waco on tricycle gear Also the tiny red biplane, El Chuparosa, that is now in the EAA Museum.

That "old terminal" is the 1940 Air Terminal Museum at Houston Hobby, not an "artist rendering". In fact, it's ripped directly off the Wikipedia page for the museum. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1940_Air_Terminal_Museum
The specific photo - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1940_Air_ ... Museum.jpg
I did send an e-mail to the writer of the article to make sure he was aware of the origin of the image and the possible CC BY-SA license violation as the original photographer isn't credited.

The Air Terminal Museum Lodestar is a real beauty. Hope she does indeed return to flyable as indicated on the web site.

Quick update - the writer, Mr. Morgan, answered my e-mail this morning and said the image will be removed from the online version as the owner confirmed the image provided was of the 1940 HAT and not an actual rendering of what they're hoping to build on the site. Mr. Morgan also said he'd asked the owner for a rendering and that it wasn't something they provided as part of the interview for the story, so at least he was up front about that and not that the owner had done this trying to pull something over on the readers.

Is' Harvy Young a grass strip on east side of Tulsa? I know I am getting old and tend to forget things, but if my rusty memory is still working, I used to fly a Tomahawk and a few Champs from this privately owned airport.
Talachet had a P- 38, P- 47, 2 Spits, 2 P- 39s there in early 80's.
Terminal there was a single story house.
If I am wrong, someone please reboot my brain cells.
