12th Armored Division Memorial Museum & Dyess Air Force Base Volunteers to Paint Aircraft at Brownwood Regional Airport

CityofBrownwoodlogo_smallBrownwood City Council approved the use of volunteers from the 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum and Dyess Air Force Base to paint the two military static aircraft displayed at the Brownwood Regional Airport and authorized the expenditure of $2,800 for paint supplies at their regular meeting on Tuesday.

According to Brownwood Regional Airport Manager Bobby Burks, the U.S. Air Force (USAF) had contacted the City of Brownwood and advised that restoration work was needed on the static aircraft display at the airport.  City officials had previously gone out for bids for this work to be completed; however, bids came in but were very costly.

Aircraft restoration vendors recommended by the USAF included many which were located out of state, two bids were received and the lowest bid was received from Day Aircraft Refinishing of Brady for $45,000.  This was a budgeted project; however, council members voiced concern over the ongoing maintenance cost as compared to how many people visit the aircraft displayed and the item was tabled at the May 10, 2016 meeting.

City manager Emily Crawford stated that previous news stories regarding the restoration and expense brought attention to the city’s dilemma and a group of volunteers from Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene came forward and presented the council with a proposal to paint the aircraft, General Dynamics F-4 and F-11.  The work will be volunteer labor from the 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum and Dyess Air Force Base.  City officials visited Dyess to see the work of the volunteers on aircraft at Dyess and were pleased.
