Join us for a guided tour of the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, dedicated to preserving America's aviation heritage. See its splendid collection of nearly 50 beautifully preserved vintage aircraft, which are housed in 4 hangars on Addison Airport. The collection covers the World War I era to the Vietnam war. Ninety percent of the aircraft are in flyable condition, and are featured in air shows throughout the country. Our guide will address each specific aircraft's place in history.
Our route to Addison will take us through fine neighborhoods north and east of Fort Worth, and thus avoid the typical construction and traffic bottlenecks as we travel northeast from Fort Worth. After our museum visit, we will proceed to Addison's restaurant row, park in a strategic spot, and each attendee can enjoy lunch in a restaurant of his or her choosing. We can dine individually or in groups. Lunch is optional.
