Cavanaugh Flight Museum has long been known for bringing history to life at their Addison, Texas museum. However, this summer the lauded museum will bring their collection to Grayson County.
On Saturday, June 8, Cavanaugh Flight Museum will host the American History Warbird Ride Day. From 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., guests will be able to view aircraft and even purchase rides in selected planes, including the museum's B-25 Mitchell, T-6 Texan, TravelAir 4000, O2 Skymaster and UH-IH Iroquois Huey.
Discounted flights begin at only $90.
"We're thrilled to bring a part of the Cavanaugh Flight Museum collection to the North Texas Regional Airport," explained Cavanaugh Flight Museum Executive Director Doug Jeanes. "This is really just a first step in creating aviation history events for the Texoma region, and we're excited to be a part of this growth."
The museum hopes to bring a full air-show style event to Grayson County in the future. Earlier this year, the museum acquired 60,000 square feet of hangar space at the North Texas Regional Airport and they have developed a partnership with Sherman's Experimental Aviation Association chapter whose volunteers assist with plane restoration at the hangar.
