The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is looking for new volunteers to help with our raffle ticket selling and PR efforts at the Wings Over Houston Airshow. This is going to be a really exciting event. If you are interested in helping us on Saturday and/or Sunday, please call or email the Museum.
On Saturday, November 7, 2009, the raffle plane will be returning to the Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX area to attend the Flying Musician’s Association fly-in at Fort Worth-Spinks Airport (KFWS)! This promises to be a very fun fly-in event, featuring several live music performances and jam sessions throughout the day, including the Grammy Award-winning Brave Combo at 5pm. If you love airplanes and you love music, this is one event you cannot miss!
There will be two stages, one indoor the other outdoor, with presentations and music all day long. The Fort Worth Songwriters Association will staff two Jamming Tents for impromptu jams. All are welcome to bring their instruments and singing voice and participate. A Drum Circle and a Native American Flute Circle will also be open for all to experience.
A “Meet and Greet Reception” is planned for Friday night, November 6, 2009. Saturday activities will start with a Pancake Breakfast hosted by the Fort Worth 99′s, followed by an aviation “Wings” seminar then non stop music throughout the day. There will be Young Eagle rides for kids ages 8 to 17 while the B-25, DC3 and other aircraft will be selling rides and tours. Don’t forget the Fireworks after sunset and the Fly-Outs with a route from Spinks to circle downtown Dallas then direct to circle downtown Fort Worth and back to Spinks. If you haven’t done this it is a beautiful flight.

The Hobby Hangar Hop was a great success! As Houston temperatures dropped into the 50s on a gorgeous evening, the CAF’s B-17 Texas Raider provided a perfect backdrop for this magical event. Expect pictures in our galleries soon. Special thanks to our table sponsors, guests, the Barnstorming movie producers, the Gulf Coast Wing of the CAF and to Megan Lickliter-Mundon and our terrific volunteers for making the evening such a success.
