Mi-24 visits Bryan, Texas

A call to the Cold War Air Museum recently led to a quick trip to Bryan Texas. When the R4D from the sister museum on the field developed maintenance issues, the Mi-24 gallantly filled the vacant spot at the Coulter field airshow.

Bryan is the sister city to College Station, home of Texas A&M University.

Even with more aircraft flying in, and flying over, the Mi-24 was a big hit. And, the crew even remembered to take the fund-raiser T-shirts with them to the show.

The group takes a moment to pose with some of the CAP members that attended and helped with the show.

A prior post featured a story about one of the Faculty Members of the Bush School of Government and Public Service. The Bush Library and Bush School at Texas A&M house unique lessons and programs from the cold war era.
