Cavanaugh Flight Museum will bring the sights and sounds of history to life with Fall Fly Days and Car Show, a fall festival featuring rides in Cavanaugh’s famed collection of vintage aircraft and military vehicles. Families will enjoy the carnival-like atmosphere featuring games and activities for the kids, Sherman tank demonstrations, concessions, aircraft tours and unique photo opportunities with the aircraft that are not normally available for viewing.
The event will also host to a rare gathering of five to seven P-40 Warhawks in honor of the last official reunion of the AVG Flying Tigers. The gathering will be the largest assemblage of P-40’s in one place in more than a decade. The P-40 Warhawk was a key fighter throughout WWII, and is most often seen with its characteristic “shark mouth” paint decoration.
On Saturday, the Cavanaugh Flight Museum will also host the Pontiac Southern Nationals Car Show, featuring some of the finest Pontiac muscle cars in Dallas-Fort Worth. On Sunday, the American Classic Car Show will celebrate classic and custom vehicles from every era.
