The Raffle Plane will be heading to historic Ranger, TX for a fly-in and airshow at the historic Ranger Field (F23) on Friday October 4 and Saturday October 5th.

This is a grass strip that was originally visited in 1911 when RG Fowler landed his Wright biplane there on his quest to win the William Randolph Hearst prize for crossing the US in 30 days.  Sadly, it took Fowler over 100.  This is a small, city-owned airfield that is maintained by volunteers, and they really want to get the word out about themselves.  This fly-in and airshow is a great way to get back in touch with history.
