Commemorative Air Force Wings over Dallas Air Show
October 6 – 8

2017 promises to be a great year and Wings Over Dallas has already chosen a “Heavy Bombers Theme” for 2017.  All CAF aircraft are invited and welcome to attend.  Whether your unit desires to sell rides or just coming for the fun, you and your CAF unit and aircraft should plan on attending.  With the 75th anniversary of the Doolittle Raiders and the hope to get all of the CAF B-25’s to attend, we are most certain to have an all star line up of bombers, transports, liason, and fighters.  We are even planning a Formation Clinic for the days prior leading up to the Airshow. This will be held at Dallas Executive Airport.
