West Texas Warbirds

by Mark Johnston   September 4, 2015

On August 28th and 29th the Wings Miniature Aircraft Society held their annual warbird meet in Abernathy Texas. This years event had 26 pilots they also were showing off new sections of pavement and pilots area that was constructed using money from the field assistance grants that they received. The flying was a blast with lost of great aircraft. WWII, jets and lots of other aircraft in military colors.

The contest director was Brian McLarty he had lots of help from all of the club members. They did a great job with the event.

Jimmy cowman brought out his B-17 and flew with Mike Liabel from the Houston area with his B-24 and.a B-25 all three were beautiful aircraft. Nick and Jon Johnson flew a couple of very nice turbines. They also had a couple of turbo prop aircraft but we're unable to get in the air.

A great event for the warbird crowd to come fly, have a good time and eat some great BBQ.
