  1. My wife and I are looking forward to the fly-in and camp out this year. It is always a great adventure looking at all the planes for ideas to use.

  2. Jared:

    It was great to find your web site and chat with you on the phone today. I’m looking forward to having NC77605 at your event in October!

  3. Hi Jared, I’m attending this year’s flyin.
    I’m bringing the oldest surviving Beech Bonanza
    Serial # 4. It is based at Parker County airport.
    Looking forward to the flyin.
    You’re doing a great job keeping the airport going.

    Great Job!! We are looking forward to seeing the planes fly. Great event for Ranger!!! Traci

  8. Looking forward to flying the Maule M7 to the fly-in this weekend. I’ll be there mid-afternoon Friday and set up the tent:)

  9. Say what!!!

    You have got to be kidding. Put up a temporary tower and that will be the end of this fly-in!


  10. Jared,

    Ellie & I will be arriving on Friday in 72B. We hope that our SWPC chapter will also be in attendance.

    I wonder if the FAA would provide a temp tower for you this year? It gets rather interesting on Saturday in the pattern!


  11. Jared, Looks like I can finally make the airshow. I’m excited to have the chance to visit. See you soon!

  12. Very nice site!

  13. Good to see it’s gonna happen again. Nice work Jared…

  14. Great Show! It was great getting to see the planes up close and for the kids to see some planes. We’ll be at 2013!
