The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) announces the first CAF Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow on Oct. 28-30, 2016 at Dallas Executive Airport (DEA) presented by Frost Bank. The event will commemorate the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and feature TORA! TORA! TORA!, an award winning re-creation of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.
The TORA team uses WWII-era aircraft and pyrotechnics to create a dynamic history lesson. In addition to this performance, dozens of other WWII-era aircraft will be exhibited on the ramp and in the air throughout the event. As part of a wider plan to establish a major new museum/attraction at DEA (formerly known as Redbird Airport), the CAF has a vision for CAF Wings Over Dallas to become the nation’s pre-eminent annual World War II themed airshow and military reenactment event.
Flying demonstrations, flight line presentations, battle reenactments, veteran appearances and aircraft tours will provide hands-on opportunities for families and aviation history enthusiasts. Tickets are on sale at www.wingsoverdallas.org with advance purchase discounts available.
The Dallas Executive Airport is located at 5303 Challenger Dr. in Dallas, Texas.
