Fort Worth became part of the vanguard of the military aviation evolution during World War I. Newly built airfields like Barron Field near Fort Worth trained large numbers of US pilots, allowing the United States to quickly catch up to the air power of European countries. The Fort Worth Aviation Museum chronicles the history of North Texas Aviation and provides a thrilling and immersive experience for visitors with robust exhibits and a substantial collection of operational aircraft.
