If so, please contact me at ryan@lbirds.com. We are looking for able Liaison Pilots who are still able to travel to attend our annual event honoring them.

The event will be at the home field of the Alamo Liaison Squadron - Cannon Field - on April 21, 2012. The FAA Identifier is 53T and we are now a public-use airport. It is a grass field, and there are a few hazards for those not familiar, so be sure to check your AF/D before dropping in.

We are scheduled to have two WWII liaison pilots in attendance.

The Alamo Liaison Squadron's annual picnic flying and fundraiser is scheduled for April 17th in 2010. All are invited. There is no gate fee, only a donation for the barbeque. Events will likely include the traditional "L-bird" demo as well as the flour bombing and spot landing contest. We hope to host a related movie as well.
