Fort Worth Thunderbirds Warbird Fly In: RESCHEDULED! July 11, Benbrook, TX


After being rained out in May, this event is on on for one week from today, on July 11. Brave the heat and come on out!

If you live in the DFW area, or within driving distance, I would like to extend an invitation to anyone with a warbird model to come join us on July 11 at the Forth Worth Thunderbirds Warbird event.

This has historically been mostly a glow/gas event, but in the last few years, more and more electric warbirds have been showing up. I would really like to get more electric fliers out to this great event.

It doesn't look much worse than the Texoma Meet was in Sherman on the 4th.

Well, the weather won out today. The event is provisionally rescheduled for June 27, pending the approval of the AMA District 8 event coordinator.

Let us know Thomas - weather is a bugger for sure - I was out camping with the scouts last night. Not much fun!

What does "approval" mean. If a club wants to hold an event on a certain date can the AMA not approve it? Why should the AMA care?

It's just a matter of trying to help deconflict the events in the area. They try to keep no more the "fun-fly" type events farther than 75 miles (100 miles) apart to keep events from "stealing" participants from each other.

I might be able to make it on June 27th.

There was a conflict on June 27, so the new date is now July 11th. See original post for all details!

Still at the old field......Given that the government is building our replacement field, it is not too surprising that it is running behind schedule...
