Sometimes there is not a lot of information that comes with an archived photograph at the Star-Telegram.

This Throwback Thursday photo is of a 1940s Lockheed Lodestar that was parked out at Meacham Field in 1971. According to the caption, the plane was once owned by the famous Burnett family’s 6666 Ranch. A quick search of our archives doesn’t show any other article attached to the photo.

“Last Roundup - This Lockheed Lodestar was once owned by the 6666 Ranch of West Texas. The 1940-vintage transport now sits idle at the south end of Meacham Field,” reads the caption of the photo that appeared in an April edition of the Star-Telegram.
