The Bomber Field

The Bomber Field

Bomber Field is an organization dedicated to the preservation of aviation history through the promotion of scale aeromodelling. The Bomber Field facility was developed in 1987 on fifty-five acres of farmland located near the town of Monaville, Texas one mile west of the intersection of FM 359 and FM 1887.

This facility is the dream-come-true of Mr B.B. Weber, the owner and designer of the original facility layout. The organization is a nationally recognized club, mainly because of the annual B-17 Gathering and Scale Big Bird Fly-In. This event attracts modelers from all over the North American continent and Europe. Members of Bomber Field take pride each year in the planning, promotion, and performance of this and other equally important events. The events held at Bomber Field not only generate funds to maintain the property, but provide an opportunity for fellowship and information exchange within the modeling community.

The Facility
Runway: a 50’ x 700 ’ (15 x 214 meter) all-weather paved surface with taxi-ways. Approach is unobstructed from either end. Adjacent to the main runway is an 800’ (250 meter) grass runway. Steel fences are provided for pilot and spectator protection. Each flight station has side barrier fencing.

Waterway: for seaplanes there is a 100’ x 600’ x 3’ (30 x 200 meter pond 1 meter deep) located away from the main landing field.

Pit Area: a covered 30’ x 150’ (10 x 50 meter) pavilion with seven 4’ x 30’ (1.5 x 10m) tables provides convenience for assembly and maintenance of models. Also, 110-volt power outlets are installed and the entire pavilion area is well lighted for night activities.
