Taking flight for the first time in 1934, Dallas’ famous “Flying Red Horse” soared atop the city’s first skyscraper until 1999, when it was replaced by a new version. The 11-ft. Pegasus, grounded for years, was restored in 2015 to its former glory. The Texas icon now greets visitors at the Omni Dallas Hotel. Photo by Steve Masker, stephenmasker.com.
