Check out Free Things to do in Fort Worth in September

Fort Worth's museum of warplanes -- the Veterans Memorial Air Park -- will hold its grand opening on Sunday, September 12.

Located on Long Street at Ross (just south of Meacham Airport), the museum has acquired and restored 18 historic warplanes. And VMAP operators plan to add more. The collection includes old warriors such as the Fort Worth-built General Dynamics F-111 --the Aardvark. The F-111s played a large role in the April 1986 raid on Libya. There is a Republic F-105 Thunderchief. Nicknamed the "Thud" this airplane was used during the Vietnam War.

Admission is free on September 12. The VMAP will open at 11 a.m. and doors close at 5 p.m. A ribbon cutting is planned for 11:30 a.m. There will be games and a "train ride" for children. For more information call: 800 575-0535.

The Veterans Memorial Air Park is located at 3300 Ross Avenue, Fort Worth, TX 76106 and is open to the public.
