Texas City RC Annual Warbird Fly In

by Benny Behrens   April 24, 2017

Saturday April 8, 2017 I visited the Texas City RC Club’s annual Warbird Fly-In. The weather was perfect and the event was a huge success with approximately 45 registered pilots, many swap meet participants, great raffle prizes and many spectators and visitors. The club volunteers really did a great job planning and managing this event.

The many types and sizes of military aircraft represented a great cross section of WWI through current military aircraft and provided a great show for the spectators and visitors. The weather was typical spring conditions - cool and very flyable with the flight line full for most of the day. Texas City’s field was in great condition and with improvements made during the last year the club was able to handle the number of pilots and spectators with no problems.

The flying included two turbine demonstrations and an attempt to break Jetero’s 18 warbird gaggle local record but fell short by about 6 planes. Still a great try!

Thanks folks for a great event…
