Aviation Videos

Yes, there are plenty of videos on YouTube but lately I have notice the quality of the videos being produced improving. Now my focus is vintage aircraft but my interest can bleed over to other aircraft when I see cool content. My last post was a link to Mikey McBryan's Plane Saves. This post will include links to other channels that I have subscribed to.

Dewey Davenport is the owner of several vintage airplanes and he has been visiting the restoration of the Mid America Flight Museum's Travel 6000 at the shop in Ohio. Follow along to see the restoration and other aviation stories.




Eric Goujon is one of the pilots with The Flying Bulls collection in Austria. His short videos highlight his flying airshows around Europe. The scenery is AMAZING as well as the aircraft!

The link above is for an episode where some vintage 8mm videos are shared.

The Another Time offices are busy scanning vintage magazines. On an almost weekly basis we comb through our collection and scan aviation art and advertisements for our library. 


In March we checked out a newly painted F-5 at the Fort Worth Aviation museum near Meacham Field. Our boy likes the models in the museum and enjoys flipping switches in the simulator.

As often as we can our boy and I cruise the airports around North Texas. Hicks Airfield, Aero Valley Airport, Propwash Airport and Meacham. Rare vintage airplanes are always on our radar! In April we visited Propwash in Justin to check on a friends Ryan ST.



Our May family trip to Disneyland and Legoland in California included a side trip to see the airplanes at Planes of Fame and Yanks Air Museum. It wa…

TEXACO ad featuring Waco Cabin

We recently sorted some aviation advertisements and found this TEXACO ad. The ad highlights their products used by airlines of the day.
