Benbrook Thunder Jet Fly In, Thunderbird Field, Fort Worth, TX Oct 17,2020


The Fort Worth Thunderbirds are hosting a jet fly in at Thunderbird Field in Mustang Park at Lake Benbrook on Saturday, Oct 17.

I will serve as the event CD.

All types of jets are welcome: Turbine, EDF and glow DF.

We have a near perfect concrete runway that is 480 feet long and 40 feet wide. Turbines operate there regularly.

The goal is to have lots of relaxed flying and lots of jet type “hangar flying”.

Landing Fee to be announced. Pilot lunch will be included.

More details as they become available.

I am planning on packing my van with lots of jets and flying all day!

See you there!

Benbrook Thunder is going to happen!!

After due consideration, we are changing a few things to minimize close personal interaction to make the event simpler due to the current circumstances.

1. No registration required. No entry fee!
2. The club will accept a voluntary donations for the field use of the at the event, if you would like to make one.
3. We will have a raffle for a couple of jet kits!
4. We will not provide lunch. We will have a person that will be able to run to a nearby Chic-Fil-A and pick up a sandwich for you if needed. We suggest you bring your own food, drinks and snacks.

Firm this up on your calendar and come out on Oct 17 for some jet powered fun!

The goal is to have a great day flying jets with the simplest and safest possible operations.
