One of North Texas’ largest airshows returns to Dallas Executive Airport from October 29-31, 2021, when the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) hosts the Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow, presented by Frost Bank. The interactive event features spectacular flying demonstrations, battle reenactments, veteran appearances, living history encampments, hands-on family and educational activities, aircraft rides, cockpit tours, and more. This year’s theme “Texas Goes to War” will highlight the Lone Star State’s significant contributions to support America’s victory.
More than forty World War II-era aircraft – including bombers, fighters, and support airplanes – are expected to participate in the airshow. This year’s featured performer is TORA TORA TORA, the aerial reenactment of Pearl Harbor. Aircraft featured this year include the B-29 Superfortress FIFI, B-24 Liberator Diamond Lil, C-47 That’s All, Brother, and B-17 Flying Fortress Texas Raiders. Fighter planes such as the P-51 Mustang, P-40 Warhawk, T-6 Texan, and more, will participate in aerial activities and historic reenactments of air battles, complete with pyrotechnic effects.
Tickets for CAF Wings Over Dallas are currently on sale at www.wingsoverdallas.org, with advance purchase discounts available. Rides in numerous World War II aircraft are also available through the website.
