Air show brings historic planes to Houston

September 5, 2017 by  

The Wings over Houston Airshow is taking place next month for two days, and is a presentation of the Commemorative Air Force.

The show is set to feature some of the most famous flying teams and some historic warbirds. Among those appearing at this year’s show will be the USAF Thunderbirds and the 138th Fighter Wing of the Tulsa Air National Guard. Some of the planes that will be flying will be the US Navy F 18 Super Hornet and the A-10 Thunderbolt II.

There will be a static warbird display where the public can get up close and personal with the planes, a NASA Driven to Explore exhibit, and the Long Star Flight Museum. Several flying heroes will be signing autographs in the Legends and Heroes tent. There will also be aircraft rides, motion simulator rides, and a kids’ area with games and activities.

Vendors will also be on hand to sell souvenirs related to flying. In addition, a souvenir program will be available for purchase; it is likely that organizers worked with a Houston brochure printing firm to produce the program.

The Wings over Houston Airshow will be held at Ellington Field from October 21 to 22. Tickets are $30 per day, and VIP tickets are available for $65 and up. To learn more about this upcoming event, call 713-266-4492.
