Thiefneck Flying Field Flyin, Texas
« on: April 29, 2017, 07:17:21 AM »
Come out and enjoy lunch with us at Thiefneck Flying Field Saturday 5/27/17. This is a private grass strip not on the charts. Plan on a short field landing, 1000 ft, it's actually 1300 ft but the end is at the lakes edge. Maintained grass, a bit up a slope, landing is from one hilltop to another, heading is 18/36, use freq. 122.9.

Far as field condition, I used to fly and hanger my RV6 out of here. Sold it back in December.

The menu is yet to be determined, either Hamburgers or BBQ Brisket and the fixins or possibly a Fish Fry.

Thanks Les, I'm looking forward to having the Legal Eagle in the air soon.

I would be happy to host a National Gathering of Legal Eagles!
