This was a nice little side trip. We stopped here on our way to Dallas. It is interesting to hear the stories of these pilots.

A great collection of memorabilia that helps to inform visitors of a little known piece of history, outside Terrell. Staffed by passionate and knowledgeable volunteers. The museum has begun a renovation but is still worth a visit!
