TICO Airshow to Honor Tuskegee Airmen

Mar 03, 2014 No Comments by

The Valiant Air Command will host the 37th Annual TICO Warbird Airshow next weekend in Titusville, Fla. This year’s program, to be held March 14-16, will be a special tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen and the missions they flew in their “Red Tail” North American P-51 Mustangs protecting U.S. bombers in Europe during World War II.

Loaded with entertainment for the whole family, each day’s activities will include a three-hour aerial performance by over 40 aircraft from World War I, World War II, Korean and Vietnam flying formations and demonstrations of parachute jumps and simulated dog fights.

Additionally, military and civilian aircraft will be on display and military re-enactors and firepower will be demonstrated.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
