Does anyone has information on Waco Airports in Texas.
Runways, ATC, ATIS, VOR, ILS, Etc...?

Reason for this was the British Airways Boeing 777 landed in Waco, Texas today due to Prime Minister Tony Blair came for a visit with the U.S. President George W. Bush, Bush & Blair were taken by US President Helicopter to Crawford Texas from Waco, later to discuss War on Terrorism. Blair is spending all weekend in Crawford, Texas returning back to UK by Monday or Tuesday

In a more "local" vein, it is a crummy little airport. I shot instrument approaches there for practise several times because there is never any traffic. The really bad news is that, if you land there, you are in Waco. A more dismal place is hard to find.

Did the BA 777 land at ACT or CNW?

It seems to me it would be safer to land at CNW than at ACT; CNW is built on the old James Connally AFB, and can easily accommodate big A/C, such as a 747 or 777. The only customers at CNW are Airborne Express, which gets DC8s’ and DC9s, and Raytheon, who gets a wide variety of A/C, both military and civilian. While I was going to school in Waco, I saw everything from a NASA 747 to a USAF CK 135s.

If I get bored this weekend, I may drive up to Waco and see for myself!

The longest runway at Waco Regional Airport is runway 1/19 which is 6596 x 150 ft. Apparantly the PM is also visiting College Station, tx (home of Texas A&M University) which has a 7000 ft runway, so the 777 must only need about 6000 feet or less to take off and land. I would venture to guess that the PM & staff don't really give the 777 a full load, thereby decreasing the required takeoff and landing distances.

TSTC-Waco Airport has an 8600ft runway, but TSTC appears to be waco's secondary airport and I doubt it has the facilites to keep a 777 for an extended period, but I may be wrong.

I stand corrected, I just read on another thread that the PM will use Waco TSTC not Waco Regional.

This makes sense because TSTC has the longer runway. TSTC is also the airport Air Force One uses to carry GWB on.

TSTC is not used for scheduled commercial air traffic. Waco Regional is where all the (gasp) regional carriers fly out of. American Eagle and a couple others.

TSTC used to be an AFB, as has been posted. It has a good sized runway and several airlines, as well as the military and NASA, use the airport for repairs, training, etc. Also, Texas State Technical College (TSTC, get it?) uses the airport for alot of its training in the aviation field.

My uncle has a ranch a mile or so from the base (he's down the street from Wings for Christ Int'l (73F)) and always sees large airliners, large cargo aircraft, and military aircraft flying in and out. He often sees AF1 going in and out when George W. goes down to Crawford. I was at my Grandma's in Waco for Thanksgiving and was on my way to my Uncle's ranch when Marine 1 and a backup flew over us.

They even had an AN124 in there a few years back.

I think it's funny that Waco and TSTC are getting all this attention now that Tony Blair has flown in on a 777... GWB flies in there on a regular basis on Air Force 1 and I hear nary a peep on the forum.  Smile
