There is a special event coming to Meacham Field in Fort Worth, Texas on September 14th and 15th - the National Air Tour. It was about noon on Thursday, July 5, 1928 when the National Air Tour first arrived at Meacham, and seventy-five years later, it's back! As part of the Centennial of Flight celebrations this year, a group of 25 vintage aircraft are recreating the original National Air Tour of 1925-1931. Meacham Field in Fort Worth was one of those original stops. This will be a great opportunity to see some very rare airplanes. You can find full details at the National Air Tour website
