75th Anniversary of Bryan Army Air Field

(Photo Cutline: The Spirit of Bryan Field aircraft, a P-51 Mustang, lands at Bryan Army Air Field on June 6, 1943, the day the field was dedicated. For the first time, the public was welcomed onto the U.S. Army Air Forces installation and treated to an air show, music from the Waco Field Air Force Band, and the christening of The Spirit of Bryan Field. Tens of thousands of area residents attended the festivities.)
