FBO FEATURE
a temporary line room, set next to
temporary facilities of the executive
terminal, where we receive people. And
we've been running operations out of
there for a year. It's worked great. People
have been very kind and understanding it
is a temporary facility, but it actually has
worked very well out there for us to be
able to take the building all the way to
the ground and start over, " Vandyke said.
The design of the new TAC Air -
AMA facility borrowed design ideas
from other TAC Air locations. Chiefly,
the suspension of an aircraft from the
facility's ceiling. The aircraft at TAC Air
locations hold significance to the region's
location. For example, at TAC Air -
RDU in Raleigh, N.C., a Wright Flyer
hangs in the facility and at TAC Air -
DAL in Dallas, a 1:5 scale model 727 of
the Braniff Airways, Dallas Cowboys'
aircraft that was first logoed for the NFL
team hangs in the main lobby.
" In Amarillo, we really wanted to
be specific to that airfield and what it
was historically known for. It was one
of the first MRO stations for the B-17
bomber and the facility and whole
airport was designed around that
aircraft, " Perryman said.

runway to keep it fully updated.
" I think we chose the B-17 as the
featured aircraft because of the heritage
there at English Field and the Amarillo
International Airport. And so we will
have a 1:5th scale B-17G bomber hanging
from the ceiling inside the facility. It's
going to follow a paint scheme, similar
to the famous B-17, the Memphis Belle,
making it exciting for both civilian and
military pilots and travelers coming
through to the facility, " he continued. 
