We’re making our first appearance as a featured performer at the Vectren Dayton Air Show this weekend! Our P-51C Mustang will fly in the show AND be on display along with the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit.  This is going to be a really fun event with a parade, pyrotechnics show, a full slate of exhilarating performances in the sky and plenty of static aircraft for a complete hands-on experience.

Not only will our P-51C Mustang give a great performance, but our aircraft will also fly in the show as an escort to the B-29 bomber, just as it did in combat.  General admission rates to the show apply, but as always admission to the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit is free. Come see us in Ohio!


The CAF Red Tail Squadron is volunteer-driven 501c3 organization that operates as part of the Commemorative Air Force. For more information about the Squadron and its educational mission, visit www.redtail.org.
