Commemorative Air Force presents Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow
Wings Over Dallas annually attracts more than 15,000 visitors from more than 30 states, attracted by spectacular flying demonstrations, battle reenactments, World War II veteran appearances, living history encampments, hands-on family activities, aircraft rides, cockpit tours, and more.
This year’s show will include a re-enactment of the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor titled "Tora Tora Tora." The fiery show features 68 pyrotechnic effects and six to eight replica Japanese aircraft in air battle reenactments with American fighters.
More than 30 historic aircraft are set to participate in the air show. A special emphasis will be on aircraft of the Pacific Theater including a PBJ Semper Fi, FM2 Wildcat, FG-1D Corsair, and an F6F Hellcat. To honor the 75th anniversary of the World War II’s end, an “Arsenal of Democracy” lineup representing all aircraft categories includes well known CAF aircraft B-17 Texas Raiders, P-51 Gunfighter and C-47 That’s All, Brother.
The aerial activities will be supported on the ground by personal appearances from numerous veterans, living history reenactment groups and military vehicles. Rides in many of the aircraft are available and can be booked via the event website.
