U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and Breitling Jet Team to Lead
31st Annual CAF Wings Over Houston Airshow Oct. 17-18
The Texas Flying Legends are proud to be a part of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) 31st Annual Wings Over Houston Airshow again this year.
Our B-25 Betty’s Dream will be on loan to the Disabled American Veterans, so be sure to stop at the DAV tent to see the static display, and perhaps a flight or two on Friday. Currently the plan is to have the TBM Avenger, the P-40K Aleutian Tiger, our P-51D Dakota Kid II, and the Zero Last Samurai in the Texas Flying Legends show and on the ramp, so keep your eyes skyward! We are working on a few special guests too, so check back for updates!
Visit the airshow’s website, www.wingsoverhouston.com, for more information, directions, and to purchase tickets in advance. Tickets can also be purchased by calling 888-4-FLYSHOW or at some area Kroger stores. Purchase early for best pricing as ticket prices go up as event nears and to secure reserved seating. Tickets can be purchased at the gate on show days, but premium reserved seats sell out early.
