One thing I have been missing since moving from Houston is all the great events! The Wings Over Houston airshow was one of our favorites! It’s that time of year again, and you don’t want to miss it! At the 2013 Wings Over Houston Airshow our kids had a particularly great time watching their favorite airplane, Dusty.

Wings Over Houston Airshow
The Wings Over Houston Airshow, is a production of the Commemorative Air Force, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It is one of the largest civic events in Metropolitan Houston. This year it’s celebrating over 30 years of service to the community and the organizations it supports.
One of Houston’s largest non-profit civic events, the Wings Over Houston Airshow proceeds are used to sponsor the Wings Over Houston Scholarship Program for college students studying for careers in aviation, Aviation Career Education (ACE) Summer Academy for high school juniors and seniors interested in aviation, Commemorative Air Force aircraft restoration and flying historical programs, Exchange Club of Sugar Land, Rotary Club, and many other area non-profit groups. This Airshow is organized as an educational event that provides community entertainment, celebrations of patriotism, military recruiting opportunities and aviation awareness.
This year’s Wings Over Houston Airshow is taking place October 17 and 18, 2015 at Ellington Airport. It will feature the USAF Thunderbirds, Breitling Jet Team, CAF WWII Warbirds, Tora Tora Tora Airshows and more!
As a Disabled Veteran’s wife, I have really appreciated the military history at the Wings Over Houston Airshow. They always features a variety of military air crafts. I think it’s fantastic how they focus on wanting to share the history of the military aircraft and honor the men and women who fought for our country.
In addition to the opportunity to learn more about and appreciate the military, there are also many other educational opportunities as well! We talked to various pilots and learned about their planes. Plus this year there will even be the NASA Driven to Explore Exhibit, which will have a lot of great information. One of our favorites was the Flight Simulator. Different Flight Simulators will be available this year!
The show is absolutely amazing. We were just so impressed by some of the stunts performed! Debbie Rihn-Harvey is one of the highest ranked aerobatics competitors in the United States, and it was just so awesome watching her perform. She was talking through the broadcast system while performing these wild stunts like it was no big deal! It was amazing! She’ll be back again this year, so you definitely don’t want to miss it!
