Looking back on 2016
We are well into 2017 but I see that I did not post any in 2016 so here is a look back…
Most of my time is spent with family these days and that includes outings with our son. He has caught the aviation bug from me for sure!
We have enjoyed a few visits to the Frontiers of Flight Museum at Dallas Love Field.

Our three most frequently visited North Texas airports are Propwash in Justin, Northwest Regional in Roanoke and Hicks in Ft. Worth.

My son and I have also jumped into my old model building hobby. We pull out a plastic model kit from my stash and build about one airplane a month.

When we can we visit local North Texas aviation events. An open house at Propwash, a museum visit at Meacham, Addison and Lancaster.

In the Fall of 2016 us boys gave Mommy a break and did an overnight trip to the Antique Airplane fly-in held in Gainesville. Plenty of cool airplanes to spot and we even watched a fun T-6 airshow at sunset.

As I sort back through my photos I will hit so more highlights from 2016. Stop back by soon!
