Commemorative Air Force announces 2016 Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow October 28-30

Oct 28, 2016 @ 10:00am - 7:00pm

The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) announces the first CAF Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow on Oct. 28-30, 2016 at Dallas Executive Airport (DEA) presented by Frost Bank. The event will commemorate the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and feature TORA! TORA! TORA!, an award winning re-creation of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. The TORA team uses WWII-era aircraft and pyrotechnics to create a dynamic history lesson. In addition to this performance, dozens of other WWII-era aircraft will be exhibited on the ramp and in the air throughout the event. As part of a wider plan to establish a major new museum/attraction at DEA (formerly known as Redbird Airport), the CAF has a vision for CAF Wings Over Dallas to become the nation's pre-eminent annual World War II themed airshow and military reenactment event. Flying demonstrations, flight line presentations, battle reenactments, veteran appearances and aircraft tours will provide hands-on opportunities for families and aviation history enthusiasts. Tickets are on sale at www.wingsoverdallas.org with advance purchase discounts available.
