Bill Carroll has assembled a terrific digital collage of old photo’s of the Downtown Airport.

Wings over the Red Fly-in held in April 2014 was a big success! We flew over 80 Young Eagles using over 20 aircraft and pilots.
Thank You to all our volunteer members, the guys from the 343d Bomb Squadron, Barksdale AFB,
Yasmina Platt, AOPA Regional Manager for the Central Southwest Region and her Piper Archer III, and so many others who helped make the 2014 Wings over the Red a great day for all!

Bill Carrol has some great photos of the day here: http://www.billcarrollphotography.com/Airplanes/EAA-Chapter-343-Young-Eagles/
