At the Childress Municipal Airport
By Tiffany Tully/FBO Manager—
CHILDRESS – Friday, July 17, the air attack Turbo Commander came back, but our three SEATs are still flying on the fire near Brady.
Boedeker Flying Service took advantage of the somewhat cooler morning temperatures to get some spraying done.
A Swearingen Merlin flew in from San Antonio to pick up some passengers and take them back to Kerrville.
A brand-new Blackhawk helicopter flew in from Decatur for fuel on its way to Colorado to get outfitted as a fire bomber.
This weekend was pretty quiet. The SEATs came back, but there wasn’t any fire activity in the area.
Monday, July 20, the Cessna 310 finished its relief work on fires and went back home. The Swearingen Merlin dropped passengers back off.
Tuesday, July 21, a Beechcraft King Air Medevac flight picked up a patient and flew back to Amarillo. The air attack Turbo Commander helped out on a fire in Archer County, and we enjoyed a nice little rain shower. Not a busy day for the airport, but we got to splash in some puddles!
Wednesday, July 22, a Grumman Tiger stopped in for fuel on its way to Colorado, and a Beechcraft King Air Medevac flew a patient out to Wichita Falls.
Thursday, July 23, Boedeker Flying Service kept the runway busy today as we waited for a storm that never showed up.
