National Travel Air ReunionNational Travel Air Reunion

This year the Travel Air Restorers Association (TARA) will be hosting a Travel Air National Reunion celebrating 90 years since the founding of the Travel Air Manufacturing Company at Wichita, KS. Historian Ed Phillips has traveled to Benton, KS to check out Stearman Field (1K1) and he reports that the location is great and that it will make for a good base of operations. OK, here are the dates, Thursday thru Sunday Sept 17-20, 2015 so mark your calendar. Activities will be planned and scheduled on each of these days. I expect that many of you will start arriving on Wednesday, as I plan to do, so we won't miss anything. Tours of various points of interest are being planned including the original Travel Air factory which still stands and is part of Textron Aviation. All Travel Air owners and enthusiast are welcome. Check out our website www.travelair.org or call 408-356-3407 for more information. To help out with planning let us know that you are planning to come.
