Cold War Air Museum elects a new Director

Although Phil Davis has been introduced and pictured many times before, today is a special chance to recognize him in our blog.

A retired IBM'er and Cold War Era Veteran, Phil has been a volunteer with the museum for more than four years. He has seen the problems and challanges we face and helped present our programs. In addittion to his business experience, Phil has also served in other fund-raising and charitable organization roles. Now on the Board of Directors, he is ready to help us expand and challange the community to help us grow.

We may get a better picture of him for the main Cold War Air Museum web site when it is updated, but this picture serves him well, as every visitor he has greeted will instantly recognize and remember that smile.

If you are new to our blog, The Cold War Air Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration and maintenance of Cold War era aircraft with a special emphasis on aircraft flown by the former Soviet Union. The Cold War Air Museum, Inc. is a member of the Texas Association of Museums, the American Association of Museums, and the North Texas Association of Aviation Museums. We are located at the Lancaster Regional Airport in Lancaster Texas, a suburb of Dallas/Ft Worth. Aircraft associated with the Museum have participated in local, regional and national fly-ins both in static and in-flight displays. Through its web presence, the Museum also actively displays its aircraft, exhibits and programs to viewers in all 50 states and more than 30 foreign countries.

The Cold War Air Museum is a collection of Sponsors, Volunteers, Programs, Facilities, Aircraft and Exhibits. We work with local schools and charities in fund-raising events and civic, science and technical training programs. Many outstanding and experienced individuals support us with the donation of their time and aircraft. Last year more than 4,000 visitors passed through our facility, we hosted or co-hosted five on-airport events and participated in eleven off-airport events before crowds totaling in excess of 40,000. You can click on the "event" label below to view pictures and stories from some of these events.

We are glad to have Phil as a new director, he can be reached by email at email Phil Davis or through links on the main museum web site. He is anxious to hear from new volunteers.

The Museum is open to the public at no charge every Saturday from 10 to 4, check the museum schedule and location page for an aerial view of the airport and parking areas or click here for an area map. Select "get directions" for driving assistance.
