      Hi folks,

       

                  It is my privilege to announce to you that at 1550 CST today, “Christine” the F-14 returned to Fort Worth at Meacham Field to cheers and applauds from 30 crew and volunteers and many onlookers.  As Jim Bloomberg our aircraft acquisition specialist and team leader of this effort said tonight, “this was a team effort and we have a lot of people to thank.”  You all had a part in saving this F-14 and helping us bring her back here to Fort Worth .  Not only was this the longest serving F-14 in the inventory, as it turned out it was also the last F-14 to fly.  As you can see from the pictures, the crew was a bit larger and wore Air Force blue.

       

                  There will be more to come later, but this is just a short note to let you all know, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

       

      Bravo Zulu, all hands,

      Hi folks, By now you are probably aware that Christine arrived at our museum safely and in style aboard a C-5 Galaxy. Nearly 100 volunteers were involved

        Hi folks,

         

                    By now you are probably aware that “Christine” arrived at our museum safely and in style aboard a C-5 Galaxy.   Nearly 100 volunteers were involved in the recovery.

         

                    What you are probably not aware of is that while we were struggling  with the logistics of brining our F-14 home, a very dedicated group of modelers and enthusiasts at the Aircraft Resource Center were busy putting together a memorial poster tributes to our F-14 and help with the financial aspects as well.  What they combined to produce through an art house in Germany , is a giant 3’ print of “Christine.”  The collaboration is a one of a kind and copies are available to you and the general public but we wanted you to know first.

         

         

                    Here is what the print looks like: 

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         


         

                    This print is being made available through Deployment Productions at http://store.carrierbuilders.net/.  The prints cost $100, are numbered with your name on them and since a part of the cost is coming back to the Bronco Association as a fund raiser, all or a portion of your purchase may be tax deductible.  Zoltan "neu" Pocza  of Deployment Productions has even set up your purchase so you can use PayPal. 

         

                   

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

                    This is a great tribute to all F-14 and especially ours.  So, if you have already supported our recovery, thank you. If not, there is still a way to help and receive a beautiful 3’ print in return.

         

        Thanks for you support.  Visit Deployment Productions and take a look at “Christine” as art.  I am really looking forward to getting my copy.

         

        Cheers,
