Hi Mike. Reference our HMGCC outing scheduled for 10 November 2018 to the Lone Star Flight Museum.
The Whiskey Cake restaurant at Baybrook Mall on The Gulf Freeway will be a good place to eat breakfast. Plenty of parking, decent food, opens at 9:00 am on Saturday. Here is the address, phone number and website. About 5 miles on good roads over to Ellington Base after we eat.
18840 Gulf Fwy
Friendswook, TX 77546
These days, Ellington is a JRB (Joint Reserve Base) and airfield with a goodly number of armed services, govt. and civilian tenants. There is even a small PX if any retired service people want to shop.
There are multiple Wikipedia pages describing various aspects of the the base/airport:
Website for the Museum is http://www.lonestarflight.org/
I’m hoping that my friend Ron Radcliffe, Army helicopter combat pilot and highly decorated Vietnam vet will attend and explain how to fly helicopters and answer questions.
