TBM AVENGER DEDICATION 2013

The Texas Flying Legends Museum was honored to present its newest addition to the fleet to former President George Herbert Walker Bush in a private and very moving ceremony. We gathered on April 6, 2013 at the Texas Flying Legends Museum Hangar at Ellington Field, Texas.

President Bush is the epitome of fortitude and sacrifice of self; his actions as a pilot in World War II are in keeping with the values that we at the Texas Flying Legends want to emulate in our day to day lives.

The ceremony included the opportunity for president Bush to witness one of his sons and one of his grandchildren flying in the Avenger. It brought tears to many who were watching the emotional event and brought pure joy to all in attendance to see our former president smile with pride and admiration.

The event will not be forgotten by the members of our organization and we are proud of the opportunity to provide such a memory to one of the greatest generation's greatest public servants.
