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 I-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.
