The weather on Saturday morning may have been a little dreary, but it didn’t stop area pilots from flying in to the McMahon-Wrinkle Airport in Big Spring for the 13th annual Prairie Dog Fly-In. Here, Phillip Welch, Advisor Board Chairman for the McMahon-Wrinkle Airport.


Vietnam Veteran John Williams was one of the people who flew in from in Midland for the event. Williams spent 7 years active and 14 years reserve for the U.S. Air Force. In 1966 - 1967, Williams had a tour in Vietnam as a F4 Phantom pilot. He’s now retired reserve.


Williams flew in with his pilot in a Pilatus P3-05, which is a plane that was designed for the Swiss Air Force to be used as a primary and advanced trainer, including aerobatics and instrument flying.


Garden City pilot Phillip Goforth brought a Supermarine Spitfire MK26B to the event. According to Goforth, the plane is a replica of a real World War II airplane, noting it was a 90% scale version of the real airplane. Goforth told KBest News that he’s been to several of the Prairie Dog Fly-In events in Big Spring, and has even made new friends through the event.
