The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) will be presenting the first CAF Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow, Oct. 28-30, 2016. The event will commemorate the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and feature TORA!

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 range from $5-15, and you can purchase tickets here. The event takes place at the Dallas Executive Airport (5303 Challenger Dr., Dallas, TX 75237).
