Year In Review 2018

This post features a 2018 year in review in photos. My family spent a lot of time together and we love to adventure together. Those adventures could be spending the day at home, a day trip, weekend getaway or a week long vacation.

Lockheed advertisement

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. 

Northrup F-5 

Simulator

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.

Ryan ST

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.

Planes of Fame in Chino, California

Record breaking Mustang "Voodoo"

Curtiss Robin at the Yanks Air Museum

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 was a goal of mine to walk our boy around the historic airplanes at both museums. We both could hardly contain our excitement spotting the rare aircraft.

B-17 "Texas Raiders"
Grumman Duck

The very next weekend in May after returning from California we visited the Breckenridge Warbird Airshow in West Texas. It was a hot weekend but we saw some great Warbirds fly.

Invader sighting

On a tip from a friend we caught the A/B-26K on a test flight out of Meacham Airfield. "Special Kay" was about to make the trip to Oshkosh in late July.


A-26 Invader "Night Mission"

Yale tour

The DFW Wing of the Commemorative Air Force hosted an open house in September. Braving the warm temps we walked the Warbirds on display. A friend invited our boy up for a tour of the cockpit of a rare North American Yale.

Piper Cub ride

My long time friend Bill was gracious enough to give us Cub rides in Mid-September. Our boy made his dad proud by flying in the Cub with the door open and waved as he flew over!


B-17 "Memphis Belle"

Jim, Dan and Connor in the Travel Air hangar

In October I made a trip with friends Jim and Connor to the Air Force Museum in Dayton and the Champaign Museum in Urbana, Ohio along with the restoration hangar at the Mid America Flight Museum North.

I am a very blessed man. Good times with family and friends made 2018 a memorable year.
