Texas City RC Warbird

by Benny Behrens   May 15, 2018

Saturday May 12, 2018 I visited the Texas City RC Club’s (TCRCC) annual Warbird Fly-In. Unfortunately TCRCC’s original date earlier in the year got rained out but for a reschedule date they picked a great day - weather was perfect and the event was well attended with pilots and visitors. The club volunteers had the field in great shape and did a great job of planning and managing the event. CD Harvey Capel and Larry Ammons, Club President did a very good job of keeping the event running smooth and safe.

With 24 pilots there were many types and sizes of military aircraft that represented a great cross section of history and provided a great show for the spectators and visitors. Two gaggles were flown which added to the excitement.

The weather was typical spring conditions - cool and very flyable with the flight line full for most of the day. Texas City’s field is really a very nice facility with large air-conditioned clubhouse, full restrooms, lots of shade for planes and spectators along with plenty parking.

Thanks folks for a great event…
