Tex Hill Wing Commemorative Air Force at Stinson Airport


“Tex” Hill Wing, named for and authorized by David Lee “Tex” Hill, one of the famous Flying Tigers of World War II. The “Tex” Hill Wing was originally formed in Fredricksburg, Texas and named for flying ace David Lee “Tex” Hill in 2005. It moved to the Hondo Army Air Field in Hondo, Texas in 2008, where it hosted annual aviation events in honor of our veterans and active duty military. In 2017, the wing moved to Stinson Airport in San Antonio. When the “Tex” Hill Wing made the move to San Antonio, it came with the intent to fully support Stinson Airport’s educational outreach initiative. As many have begun to realize, the meaning behind the great symbols of World War II, including the many different aircraft and those who flew them, has begun to fade with time. We want to celebrate our grand opening with our San Antonio community. We plan to have city council, media, and local government representation at this memorable event.
