The Texas Air Museum is pretty slick.
They moved. The above link will take you to a website. Good luck finding the location.

Excellent & Cool! – I should definitely say I'm impressed with your blog. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related info. The site ended up being truly simple to access. Excellent job.. Carry-on. About us..! please visit.

Poorly managed.....shady management as well. Selling parts off of US Navy owned aircraft that are on display for personal gain is corrupt and I would assume frowned upon by the Navy.

It's very sad that your museum is closing up shop. If any of the remeining enthusiasts can point me in the right direction... I'm looking for a complete dash panel for a DC3 / C 147. The new museum in Malaga, Spain have an aircraft but the dash was stripped out for spares before it was passed on. Nice guys down there by the way. Pop in if you're passing.
Best wishes for 2006

Hello all, a friend just sent me the link to this board and thought I'd say hi. I'm pleased to see people out there like yourselves being so supportive of TAM. Anyway, as for TAM Rio Hondo, a good deal of the aircraft and artifacts have already been moved. The Aeronca Champ was sold, along with the last remaining AN2. The PBY and TA4J and simulator(which were on loan from the navy), went to a museum in Tyler, TX. The J3 cup and Supercub are now in San Antonio, the Skyraider is still here but going to Slaton sometime in the near future. Most of the display cases and artifacts have been more or less evenly dispersed between the two locations. The Iwo Jima and Cabot will be up for sale at some point, but will not be scrapped. Those are the last hulls that can ever be legally required without an act of congress, so they will be kept intact. The land is or will be for sale at some point.
It is sad to see the Rio Hondo chapter close and I know there are some disgruntled people, but frankly the local community there never stepped up to contribute or to even show any interest in museum. The winter Texans were the core of the museum, but sadly, many sadly passed on or no longer have the physical capacity to volunteer as in the past.
Let me also say this... the Slaton crew has done a tremendous job aquiring and displaying their aircraft and artifacts and they put on a hell of an airshow! When all is said and done, the TAM chapters will be world class museums and an even better asset to their communities.

the P-38 is clipart of the Aviation Enthusiast Corner Site.The superstructures of the Iwo and Cabot I think are going to be broken up,since the land is supposed to be sold. Slaton received various artifacts from Rio Hondo and has the Sonia(Chopstick0 and the Taylorcraft L-2 and I think the Skyraider.

Above, in your heading, you show a P-38 WW2 aircraft. Is there a P-38 in your exhibits? Since John Houston's original T.A.M. was closed in February 2005, what aircraft from Rio Hondo has been transferred to San Antonio, and Slaton? How about the USS Iwo Jima, and USS Cabot superstructures? Will these two be taken apart and moved to San Antonio, and Slaton? I was a Winter Texan in Rio Hondo, and volunteered in the gift shop, and on the grounds. Thank you.
