Cross Country Flight
Bryan, TX to Roswell, NM
After a good dinner, a visit with friends, and a night rest, we continued on to the west toward Roswell, NM. Upon departing Bryan we diverted to the west of course giving thought to seeing Del Rio, TX, where Bill had taken B26 transition during WWII. However, after checking the distance involved and our time schedule, we proceeded to Brownwood, TX, Brownwood Regional Airport (BWD) a distance of 149 miles.
After refueling at the lowest price fuel we encountered on the trip ($3.00/gal), we proceeded to fly to Brownfield, TX, Terry County Airport (BFE), a distance of 184 miles. This was an interesting stop at a small airport managed by an old time flyer who was being assisted by his daughter.
From Brownfield, we continued on to Roswell, NM, Roswell International Air Center Airport. the airport is fascinating with numerous parked commercial jets that have been removed from flight service. We again found a Best Western motel for an overnight stop.
As a result,on the fourth day of our cross country, we had flown 450 nautical miles with a flying time of approximately 4 hours
