DALLAS-Just like the Top 40 hits of radio, the exciting tours of CAP Cadet just keep on coming.  This time cadets of Dallas 391st Composite Squadron Group III Texas Wing of the Civil Air Patrol enjoyed a guided tour of the Cavanaugh Museum of Flight.  The museum located at Addison airport has one of the nation’s largest collections of warbirds.  Cadets viewed

airplanes from World War I, World War II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars.  After the more than two hour tour, everyone was treated to a hamburger feast giving them time to discuss and reflect on the awesome collection they had just enjoyed.  Seniors and cadets were invited to the guided tour.  Lt. Col Bob Sides, squadron commander said “this is just one more example of the exciting tours and open houses open to our cadets.  It’s not only ads to everyone’s aerospace educational experience,  today was just plain fun.  I want to compliment Capt Seth Grenke, commander of cadets and 1st Lt Lana Holub for their hard work in putting this tour together.  Congratulations on a great job, well done”.  

For more than twenty years, the Cavanaugh Flight Museum has offered the ultimate experience for the aviation enthusiast.  The museum displays some of the finest examples of historically significant aircraft in the world, many of which are still flying today.
