    You ever have any jet fly-ins at Benbrook. I have flown IMAC there several times, tough in the morning though.

    RE: Jet Flying @ Thunderbird Field - Ft. Worth, TX

    No we never hosted any jet related event. Our rwy was 450ft so that would have limited the size and type of jets at the event. We did have a couple of weekends with plenty of jets lined up in the ramp.

    RE: Jet Flying @ Thunderbird Field - Ft. Worth, TX

    We fly off of 400' so we're used to that. I know they are supposed to be building you a new field on the lake, any new news on that, gonna be a longer runway.

    We had a jet rally this last year and had a very poor showing. We have a very nice field but the runway is 400', I think that scared off some people. There has been a large variety of planes flown in and out of our field including some that are supposed to be runway hogs, not a problem.

    RE: Jet Flying @ Thunderbird Field - Ft. Worth, TX

    T-Bird great for sport jets - not many people willing to take a gamble with larger scale jets. Runoff not great and most off-roading would result in undercarriage woes. The new field is NOT LONGER. (well, maybe 20') 480x40 The new field is identical to the old one in construction although in a different position in relation to the water. (lake just off the approach end) The biggest deterrent however, will be the additional driving distance and restricted overfly areas. It's a shame really - one of the best backdrops you could have for flying models really... sad to see the old field go. On another note, this is the exact reason for forming the club at TMS.

    On the flip side - some contributions to the thread!

    RE: Jet Flying @ Thunderbird Field - Ft. Worth, TX

    I just flew at the new field for the first time. Beautiful runway and super nice facilitites. I landed a bit hot, so I ended up using most of the 450ft. I'm sure I should be able to cut that by half next time.

    Yes, they were hosting an SPA pattern event. I had to wait till 530 to fly, hence was only able to fly once. It was getting pretty dark.

    RE: Jet Flying @ Thunderbird Field - Ft. Worth, TX

    Smitty and myself did a small jet demo a couple of weekends ago for the 50th Anniversary. Weather was crap but we managed.
    Much to my surprise, there were two retired Lockheed Vice Presidents of Aeronautics (Ralph Heath and Zim Zimmerman), and a representative for a local Congresswoman (Kay Granger). So yes, I felt a little heat over flying a demo for the guys who make the F-16. After the demo they were really good sports and I showed them the model and were really stoked with the F-16. Too bad I left my resume at home, damn it!!

    Some pics and vid of the demo flight.

    Here's a few pics of an out-of-state panther from today. Don't remember the father/son's names.
