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.

Jim, maybe the problem is with my computer, but I can't see any pictures :-(
Will come here again to try to view them!

I am not sure what the problem is. I am going to have to try to fix it when I get home. UGH.

That is some awesome WWII memorabilia! My grandmother had 3 brothers in the war so it does interest me. I remember the stories they told about the war when I was a kid.

My husband likes WW history and stuff. I on the other hand is a bit clueless about it...but I always find Museums to be an interesting place.
