The Flights of Our Fathers Air Show & Fly In, benefiting the No. 1 British Flying Training School Museum, will be held Saturday, September 23, 2017 at the Terrell Municipal Airport, just north of IH 20 on SH 34.
The annual event draws thousands of aviation enthusiasts, local and regional residents to enjoy a full day of events and attractions. There are activities and events for all ages ranging from a kid’s zone to static displays of military, vintage and new aircraft. We have several performers lined up, including Randy Ball of FighterJets Inc. in his “Check-Six” MiG-17F, a P-51 Mustang (Pecos Bill), an A-26 (Lady Liberty), and more. Car and motorcycle shows, flyovers of vintage and modern aircraft and guest speakers, including Sir Winston Churchill’s great-grandson, Jonathan Sandys, will complete a full day of activities. There will be a variety of food vendors, as well as a pancake breakfast hosted by the Civil Air Patrol Black Sheep Squadron to start things off at 8:30 a.m.
Gates open at 8:15 am with the posting of American, British and Canadian flags, and close at 5 pm. Tickets are $10 per person or $20 per carload. For more information, visit www.terrellairport.com or call 972-551-1122.
