OUT OF THE ASHES FIRE REMEMBERED

On June 13, 1994 Conroe firefighters battled a 5,000 square foot hangar fire at the Conroe Airport. An electrical short is believed to what had caused the old World War II Navy hangar to burn to the ground along with nineteen aircraft . Some of the aircraft were vintage aircraft.

Within a year General Aviation Owner Bob Covington rebuilt the hangar.

Saturday for the twentieth anniversary he invited the public to help put away one thousand pounds of crawfish and enjoy the day viewing the vintage aircraft on the airport. Inside the hanger antique cars, part of the Metal Works Collection of Montgomery were on display. By 5 p.m. most of the crawfish and barbecue was gone. Covington estimated at least five hundred people were in attendance by mid afternoon.
