This event is a heart-pounding, adrenaline pumping spectator event that is second to none in Texas! All the airplanes flying in this event have wingspans of 7 feet or more! Biplanes have wingspans of 6 feet or more!
Pilots from all over Texas, and beyond will be tearing up the sky with some of the most incredible realistic radio control airplanes that you will ever see!
All types of airplanes including civilian, military, aerobatic and turbine jets will be flying during this event.
FORMATION FLYING !! Thundering through the skies with several airplanes screaming around together in a group called a “warbird gaggle,” pilots push the edge as they show incredible precision and control while filling the skies with their incredible planes at over 120 mph!! See P51s, P47s, Corsairs, Skyraiders and lots of other WWII airplanes!
IF you have never seen this in person, you do not want to miss it!
