Warbirds: Looking Back to The Aero Experience Southwest Tour of the Vintage Flying Museum

By Fred Harl
The Aero Experience recent Southwest Tour included a stop at the Vintage Flying Museum at Fort Worth's Meacham Field. We caught the Douglas A-26K, Special Kay, taking off on a Saturday and her return when we went back on Sunday. The museum staff was great, and there were some magnificent aircraft on display. Some of the flyable aircraft we saw were tenants and not necessarily part of the Museum itself. The EA-3B Skywarrior was recently restored. Also featured here are the Douglas C-47, Southern Cross; Royal New Zealand Air Force Harvard; the Commemorative Air Force B-24, Diamond Lil; a Lockheed T-33 (RCAF Silver Star), Piaggio P.136L1 Royal Gull amphibian; Douglas A-26B Invader, Night Mission; and several other aircraft and aviation artifacts.
