Mark your calendar now for the CAF AIRSHO, presented by Frost Bank, October 11 – 12. The 51st annual event will be held at Midland International Airport located between Midland and Odessa, Texas.
AIRSHO 2014 will include the West Texas debut of Kyle Franklin’s new air show act “Dracula, The Rise of Vacul.” Franklin’s unique bi-plane and routine is one of the most sought-after acts on the air show circuit. Complementing the high-flying action will be the CAF Red Tail Squadron RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit. The exhibit, housed in a custom-designed semi-trailer includes a 160-degree panoramic screen in a 30-seat temperature-controlled movie theater. The “Rise Above” movie highlights the courage and determination of the Tuskegee Airmen, who overcame obstacles to train and fight as U.S. Army Air Corps pilots, and what it means to us today.
“The Best Warbird Show in America” will feature many rare and historic aircraft from the CAF flying fleet, including the World’s Only Flying B-29 FIFI, two B-17 Flying Fortresses, Texas Raiders and Sentimental Journey, the Red Tail P-51 Mustang Tuskegee Airmen and reenactment performer TORA! TORA! TORA!
