Breckenridge Texas Warbird Airshow Book

We are excited to announce the release of the new book Breckenridge Warbirds!

"Typically when someone refers to West Texas, people imagine cowboys with giant ten-gallon hats and belt buckles the size of dinner plates riding horseback on cattle-filled ranchland. When someone refers to a West Texas airport some may imagine a sleepy, quite ramp with more rolling sagebrush than one filled with vintage airplanes. For two young boys, however, West Texas was where they would encounter World War Two aircraft and dreams of flying would be born."

Come along on a photographic journey to the Wabird Airshow in Breckenridge, Texas.

Breckenridge Warbirds features the stories, memories and over 170 photographs of this unique show.

Warbirds Over Addison 2014

P-38 Glacier Girl

The warm up in Texas had begun but Warbird enthusiasts still turned out in good numbers to experience the sights and sounds of Wabirds Over Addison last May. The Cavanaugh Flight Museum gives everyone the opportunity to get up close to the aircraft and the pilots for their events. Throughout the day various aircraft were flown and even rides could be purchased in the Warbirds. Here are some photos highlighting the event along with Scott Slocum's video.

Propwash Party

PT-26, PT-19, Harvard

One weekend this last May the skies over the little town of Justin, Texas were treated to the sights and sounds of vintage airplanes. The numbers in attendance were not staggering but the uniqueness of the types is what made the day. Fairchild trainers, liaison Stinsons, North American trainers and the Boeing B-29 made appearances. One shiny beauty stopped people in their tracks... the Ryan STA. Which one had people asking "what is it?" most often?  That would be the Travel Air 5000. One of two know to exist! Enjoy the photos below from the small airfield of Propwash in the hangar that houses Cowtown Aerocrafters.
