Free and the Brave 4th of July Blowout!

No. 1 British Flying Training School Museum

In Spring 1941, the United Kingdom had already been at war with Germany for eighteen long months. With no end to hostilities in sight, the small island nation was in dire need of additional trained aircrews. Thanks to the Lend Lease Agreement, Britain turned to friends across the Atlantic –– and the No. 1 British Flying Training School in Terrell, Texas was born.
