Jon Kuehler has recently became an SWBS member, and he is the manager at Tradewind Airport (KTDW) in Amarillo, Texas. Tradewind was one of the original Beechcraft sales centers in 1947. Jon has pictures of Walter and Olive Beech sitting with Shelby Kritser, the founder of Tradewind Airport, in 1946.
Jon is opening a new museum and there is also a restaurant on the field. Jon looks forward to showing off their trove of Beechcraft memorabilia and is pleased to host this one-day event, especially since it coincides with:
Props & Pistons Car Show & Fly-In
Presented by Bomb City Hot Rods
June 24, 2023 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
Plan on being there by 11 am so Jon can provide us with a personalized SWBS tour through the museum.
There are still more things to do in Amarillo and some may choose to spend the night before or after the lunch. See these KTDW links for additional information on fly-in deals (lodging specials) and fuel prices.
Event registration is encouraged so we may provide the restaurant with a headcount and perhaps try to arrange a common parking area for SWBS.
