Sunday’s interesting private airport of the day….74TE


By now you are starting to get the drift that Texas Oil has created a fair number of private airports!   Flat Top Ranch is no exeception.  Owner Louis Beecherl was chairman and chief executive officer of Texas Oil and Gas Corp. in Dallas from 1957 to 1977 and appointed to the UT Board of Regents by then governor Bill Clements.  You can read more about Flat Top ranch (74TE) here.    As depicted by the magenta ring around the air strip I suspect there is a (non-published) instrument approach procedure for 74TE.  As always…landing permission required!
