No. 1 British Flying Training School Museum

We are a military history museum located at the site of one of six British Flying Training Schools operated in the US during WW II. Come and see one of the only RAF Museums currently in the United States.

This is an OUTSTANDING museum dedicated to the Anglo-American cooperation between the British RAF and American Army Air Corps for Pilot training for the duration of World War II. I've known several 8th Air Force men who served in the UK who knew British Pilots who trained in Terrell, hence my strong interest. The museum has many interesting displays, but my favorite was the almost complete Link Trainer with all Instructor controls. The history of the base is well covered, as well as a somber exhibit to the RAF Cadets who died in accidents during training. A 15 minute video with interviews of local Terrell residents who were there during the base's operation from June 1941 to June 1945 was very well done. I was taken over to the maintenance hangar where restoration work on an AT-6 is underway, and heard the museum has acquired a Stearman that will soon arrive. This is a MUST SEE museum if you live in the Dallas area or are travelling through Dallas. Kudo to the museum staff for all their hard work in keeping the memories alive!

Books and Crannies is a independent bookstore located in historic downtown Terrell, Tx. We offer all genres of books (mostly used), a locally produced line of skin care items (Susan's Soaps and More), and we have an upscale ladies consignment shop in the same building with us. We also have a small movie theatre in the back of the store. We take gently used books in for trade credit.

I really enjoyed visiting this book store. The prices were great and the selection was vast. Don't forget to check the back corner for hidden records! I found some real gems for just $4 and $5.
