Texas September 7 Fly-in, Stinson Field KSSF

Postby c170ken » Sun Sep 08, 2019 10:55 pm

Established in 1915 when the Stinson family initially leased the land from the City of San Antonio, Stinson Municipal Airport is the second oldest general aviation airport in continuous operation in the United States [3] (after College Park Airport in Maryland).

The Works Progress Administration built the terminal building between 1935 and 1936. The building was remodeled and expanded in 2006-2008 but still retains much of its original integrity.

During World War II the airfield was used by the United States Army Air Corps as a training base. At the end of the war the airfield was returned over to the City of San Antonio for civil use.

Today Big Bib BBQ occupies a portion of the ground floor of the terminal building and that is where Texas members of TIC170A met for lunch Saturday the 7th of September. After lunch some members visited the Texas Air Museum located on the north end of Stinson Field.

Members and guests attending our monthly fly-in were: James Sterling, Joe Ramotowski, Tracy Bratton, Shiela Wyborny, Bob Snell, Ken Peck, Naomi Goodlett, Jamie Horn, Robert Jolley, Wendell Wyborney and George Horn.
