Take Flight


A Sunday dawned lovely. We did a ton of chores on Saturday. It was time to have an adventure.
Ray chose the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison TX.  50,00 square feet of hangars were filled with aviation history. Sopwith Camel - yep. P-51 Mustang, Fokkers, Spitfires, and more.

I had Ray pose in front of a Bell helicopter since Kevin works for Bell. 

We enjoyed walking around the spaces and appreciating the zoom power.  Take a Sunday drive and enjoy a jaunt in your own backyard (i.e. within an hour away).

  1. This reminded me Joanne of my late husband. He used to work in an aircraft factory and worked on the first British Concorde.
    Pleased that both you and Ray enjoyed your day.

  2. Hi Joanne - yes a To Be Seen list is definitely going to be a club! I think there'll be a few of us!

    I'm not sure I could enthuse about a Take Flight place though ... but I do go down the Seafront for our Airborne - where lots of 'pretty planes' are on view as too flying ones ... but an art gallery or two, a few musuems ... and lots else!

    Glad you had a happy day out - cheers Hilary

  5. I know Ray's not a small guy (right?) so that's a big helicopter.
