Biplanes will be flying into Galveston next month to commemorate the First Flight in Texas which occurred on February 18, 1910! The aim of this event is to raise awareness of the aviation history in Texas and help support a vintage biplane squadron! There will be all types of aircraft to see, from a WWI Sopwith Camel to newly built, modern biplanes. You can even ride in a WWII Stearman biplane! Entry is $5.00, all proceeds go towards the Biplane Squadron of Galveston.
Learn more about the First Flight in Texas here or download the article in PDF format. (PDF) Please forward this event to all of your aviation groups, encourage your biplane buddies to fly in, so that we can have a collection of handcrafted aircraft just like those flown in 1910! Trophies will be awarded to Best Biplane, Oldest Biplane, Newest Biplane and more!
Pilots who fly in with their biplanes will receive a FREE seafood lunch from Shrimp n Stuff, but we ask that you please RSVP.
