The annual Texan Roundup will be at the Gillespie County Airport, this Friday through Sunday, hosting more than 20 vintage World War II-era aircraft.
The April 24-26 roundup is a gathering of airplane pilots, and their Texan aircraft, for a weekend of sharpening their formation flying skills, talking airplanes and visiting with friends.
The concept of a formation flying clinic for Texan owners began in 2007. These vintage warbirds are constantly requested to fly at air shows, Memorial and Veterans Day flyovers and special events.
Showing the aircraft includes flying it, specifically, in aircraft formation flights. They stress flying in safe formations.
Gillespie County Airport, on the southwestern edge of town, has a large tarmac to handle many aircraft and a long and wide runway to practice two-ship takeoffs.
