The High Sky Wing has the best members around and we want to show you our appreciation!
Join us at the hangar on Saturday, July 12 at 5:00 p.m.
Let’s have some fun! Come out for airplane rides (weather permitting), dinner and a movie! We’ll fire up the pit and treat you to chicken & beef fajitas, tacos, beans, chips & queso and drinks. Movie selection TBD but it will be family friendly so bring the family.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
If you are not a High Sky Wing member yet, come out and we will show you how to join.

A lot of visitors came out to the hangar this Saturday, including folks from Mansfield, Fort Worth, El Paso, Longview and Hawaii. I was only in the hangar during the lunch hour and spoke with a lot of families and individuals, and handed out some HSW brochures. The Maintenance and Operations teams have really got the hangar looking good, and visitors are impressed. Pass the word and bring out your friends and family if they haven’t seen the “new” home of the HSW.
A very large crowd at Centennial Plaza in downtown Midland watched in admiration as the HSW conducted a fly-over to highlight the Star Spangled Salute celebration yesterday evening. The flights consisted of Bill Coombes and Jason Cooper in Bill’s SNJ, Randy Wilson and Keegan Chetwynd in the T-28, Daniel Rathburn and Parker Rathburn in SNJ 101, Alan Haskin and Ryan Linebarger in PT-19, Robin Donnelly in his LC-126, and Steve Bolin and Kris Green in the L-39 Albatros.
While 10 yr old Mackenzie Walker of Lubbock belted out a great version of the Star Spangled Banner, the wing’s time over target was just about perfect. Thanks to Bill Coombes for organizing this wing event and thanks to all who participated, including those support personnel who gave up part of their holiday to help out.
