The Coyote Squadron, a unit of the Commemorative Air Force, operates from the N.H. “Tucker” Hardgrave Memorial Hangar at C. David Campbell Field, the Corsicana, Texas, municipal airport.
One of the missions of the Commemorative Air Force is the restoration to flying condition, and the continued maintenance, of World War II military aircraft. The Coyote Squadron has such an aircraft, a PT-19, and has been fully restored.
In addition, the Commemorative Air Force seeks to perpetuate, in the memory and hearts of all Americans, the spirit in which these great airplanes were flown. To that end, and to educate and entertain visitors, the Coyote Squadron has hosted, each year since 1999, an air show that features many of these airplanes as well as many other aircraft. The aircraft, owned privately or operated by other units of the Commemorative Air Force, are flown in and displayed during the air show. Please see the pages for the annual air shows for a description of each, and note the difference between the 2010 and 2011 air shows. A highlight of the air show is the afternoon departure of all of the aircraft, one right after another!
After touring our web site or visiting an air show, you may be inspired to join us in the Coyote Squadron. We meet at the Hardgrave Memorial Hangar the second Saturday of each month at 10:30 AM. You needn’t be a military veteran or pilot to join.
