Last photos from No.1 BFTS

Here are the last of the photos from the museum. If anyone is a WWII history buff, this is the place to visit. They are always looking for memorabilia, donations or volunteers.

The first photo is made up of three Rank Flags. Flags like the ones pictured were used at the school when an officer of the indicated rank was at the airfield.

The next photo is of the control tower radio. This was taken from the control tower of what was called the Kaufman County Airport, home to No.1 BFTS.

The last photo is of a 1:2000 scale model of the airfield from the early 1940s. The only structures still standing are the two large hangers on the right. Current airfield information can be found here.
