DFW Warbirds on Parade
There are numerous war movies, history books, and stories handed down from servicemen and women about how warplanes played a significant role in our fight for freedom over the years. Now here is your opportunity to walk among some of those planes and experience up close the beauty and silent strength that earned them our respect and gratitude.“Warbirds on Parade” will be held at the Lancaster Airport, Beltline Road at Ferris Road, Between I-45 and I-35 on Saturday, September 5, 2015 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM.
