DALLAS (AP) - A vintage military aviation group known for its historic planes, air shows and education will move its headquarters from West Texas to Dallas.

Officials with the nonprofit Commemorative Air Force on Tuesday announced plans to relocate to city-operated Dallas Executive Airport. The CAF is currently based at Midland International Airport.

Organizers sought access to a larger metro area and considered airports in more than 20 cities. Messages left with Midland city and airport officials were not immediately returned Tuesday.

What began as the Confederate Air Force was chartered in 1961 in Texas to restore and preserve World War II-era combat aircraft. The CAF in 2002 changed its name to the Commemorative Air Force, currently with about 9,000 members and a fleet of nearly 160 decommissioned military planes.
