This FM-2P Grumman Wildcat was one of multiple warbirds we hosted at ATW during EAA - The Spirit of Aviation AirVenture 2016. These planes were one of the primary allied fighters during the early years of WWII. This aircraft from the Texas Flying Legends Museum wears the insignia from VMF-114, Marine All-Weather Fighter Squadron 114. This particular aircraft is an FM-2P because it was retrofitted with equipment for photo reconnaissance missions. #TBT

The Dakota Kid is one of many warbirds that were in town for EAA - The Spirit of Aviation AirVenture last year! This P-51 was actually rebuilt from the parts of other P-51’s. It takes an immense amount of work to find, restore and create parts for these old birds. The P-51 was a premier fighter and bomber escort aircraft used during WWII, and most would still consider it one of the greatest fighters ever built. Many have said the P-51’s revolutionary capabilities changed the war. For perspective, the P-51, powered by a piston engine, could fly at 41,000 feet at speeds up to 440 miles per hour. There are some modern jets that aren’t capable of either of these benchmarks! #TBT
We have 18 acres of hard-surface parking for our EAA visitors at our FBO, Platinum Flight Center!
