Texas Warbird Report – 2017 Breckenridge Airshow & Ezell Aviation

WARBIRD RADIO – The 1980’s and 90’s were heady times in the west Texas town of Breckenridge, Texas. Warbirds from all over the country converged on Stephens County Airport during the Memorial Day weekend for two days of flying that became the legendary Breckenridge Airshow.  The last show was in 1996 and has been sorely missed by warbird fans in the region. This year the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce and the folks at Ezell Aviation have joined forces to bring back the glory days of the west Texas warbird gathering.  May 28, 2017 at Stephens County Airport will be THE place to be for warbird fans!

Chad Ezell, from the famed warbird restoration shop of Ezell Aviaton, will join Zane Adams on Warbird Radio to talk about the upcoming airshow as well as some of the ongoing projects in the Ezell hangar.
