Road Trip: Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, Texas

Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth or NAS JRB Fort Worth (IATA: NFW, ICAO: KNFW, FAA LID: NFW), also known as Carswell Field, is a military airfield located five miles west of the central business district of Fort Worth, in Tarrant County, Texas, United States. This military airfield is operated by United States Navy.

The Air Force Reserve Command's Tenth Air Force headquarters and 301st Fighter Wing continue to be based at the installation, as well as the 136th Airlift Wing of the Texas Air National Guard. A number of Marine Corps aviation and ground units are also co-located at NAS JRB Fort Worth.

Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, Fort Worth, part of Navy Installation Command's Navy Region Southeast, is a joint defense facility which plays a pivotal role in training and equipping air crews and aviation ground support personnel. The Navy Fort Worth "team" ensures reservists receive quality training in preparation for mobilization readiness; here to serve the reservists, tenants, and surrounding communities while accomplishing its primary purpose of defense readiness for the United States.

Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Forth Worth was first known as Tarrant Field in 1932, but is mostly known as Carswell Air Force Base, a name it held from 1948 to 1993. The base is named after Medal of Honor Recipient and Texan, Major Horace S. Carswell, Jr.

 The site adjacent to the field was selected in 1941 as a Consolidated Aircraft factory for the production of B-24 Liberator bombers, that site is now Lockheed Martin; the manufacturer of the F-22 Raptor and the Joint Strike Fighter, F-35 Lightning II.

Over the years, the base’s overall mission changed as the aircraft factory rolled out new models. After WWII, the base became one of the few newly-formed Strategic Air Command, or SAC bases. Over the years Carswell saw its bomb wings transition through a number of bombers, like the B-36 Peacemaker, B-52 Stratofortress and the B-58 Hustler.

The base, now part of Navy Installations Command, is under the oversight of Commander, Navy Region Southeast. It hosts a variety of fighter/attack and airlift units from the reserve components of Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. Airfield operating procedures and equipment reflect a combination of service requirements, although as the operators of the local ATC system, DON imposes Navy procedures as the operations standard.

NAS JRB Fort Worth units schedule a variety of airspace. The key area for fighter operations is the Brownwood Military Operations Area (MOA). This area, originally developed to serve Commander, Naval Air Force Reserve and 4th Marine Aircraft Wing fighter and fighter/attack squadrons stationed at the former NAS Dallas, now serves as the primary airspace resource for all fighter/attack units assigned to NAS JRB Fort Worth.

 The first flight test F135 engine for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) has completed successful runs at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base facility in Fort Worth, Texas. The runs took place at an indoor engine test facility that was specially modified to handle the 40,000 pounds of thrust produced by the F135, the most powerful fighter engine ever built.

The recent decision to join the Brady and Brownwood MOAs will provide additional maneuver airspace for AIC/ACM training. When scheduled concurrently, these areas enable numerous aircraft from several units to participate in joint fighter/bomber training exercises. Brownwood MOA is the subject of an innovative test to improve the dissemination of SUA status information to non-participating aircraft.

This test, conducted to address action items in meeting FAA Free Flight planning commitments, will use a combination of recently deployed airspace scheduling and reporting systems, including the FAA SAMS and DoD MAMS. The trials’ intent is to provide more accurate (“near real-time”) area status via the Internet to civil users, especially to regional air carriers particularly affected by required rerouting around Brownwood MOA.

Located at Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, The Vintage Flying Museum preserves America's flying heritage. Twenty aircraft are on exhibit including several which are extremely rare and historic. Additional displays include a dedicated reciprocal and jet engine room, an FAA Aviation Education Resource Center, WWII memorabilia and artifact exhibits.

One of the Museum's greatest achievements and contributions to the community is the development of aviation education programs. Since 1993, the Vintage Flying Museum, in collaboration with the Federal Aviation Administration, has been offering the Dallas/Fort Worth Community a broad-based series of educational programs. These programs include aviation summer camps for middle and high school students, aviation workshops for teachers, and "Take Flight Days", (a 1-day aviation experience for elementary students).

Who Gets The Credit?

April 17, 2012

I’ve always been puzzled by the nursery rhyme “Little Jack Horner”: Little Jack Horner sat in the corner, eating a Christmas pie; he put in his thumb, and pulled out a plum, and said, “What a good boy am I!”

It seems rather odd that Jack is sitting in the corner with his plum- covered thumb held high, and saying, “What a good boy am I!” It’s usually bad boys who are sent to the corner for punishment. It seems he’s trying to draw unwarranted attention to himself and is wanting credit for the pie.

We naturally want to draw attention to ourselves, to show off our accomplishments and abilities. Sometimes we think that life is all about us. But living like that is self-delusion at its worst. In reality, our sinfulness has put us “in the corner,” from God’s point of view. Thankfully, Paul’s testimony gives us the right perspective. In spite of his impressive credentials, he gladly surrendered to the supremacy of Jesus: “But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ” (Phil. 3:7). Paul admitted that in order to “gain Christ” (v.8), he had to lay all of his trophies down.

So, give Jesus Christ the braggin’ rights of your life. Or, as Paul put it, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord” (1 Cor. 1:31)—not in yourself!

Lord, You are the One who is high and lofty.
I give myself today to the purpose of pointing
others to You, for who You are and what You do.
You deserve all praise.
We are nothing without Jesus, so give Him the credit.

Read: Philippians 3:1-11

What things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. —Philippians 3:7
Bible in a Year:
1 Chronicles 10-13

My day was not stellar - I've been under the weather since Saturday. Yesterday was the worst - felt weak as a kitten - short of breath. Today somewhat better, but I began to go downhill in the afternoon - called off PT this evening.

John starts life-guarding Memorial Day Weekend - that's when the pools open in this neck of the woods.

He turns 16 on June 21 - I got tickets for him and me for the Friday Evening Parade on June 22 at Marine Barracks Washington - 8th and I in D.C. I attended it in 1996 as part of a reunion with my outfit from 'Nam. It is an outstanding display of military precision - Marine Corps Band - Silent Drill Platoon, etc. He should enjoy it.
