Air Fiesta’s lineup of aerobatic performers has never been more packed with A-list talent than it is for this year’s event, according to organizers. At the same time, they say, ticket prices have been reduced for the event, which takes place next weekend, Feb. 22-23, at the Brownsville (Texas) South Padre Island International Airport.
Headlining Air Fiesta 2014 is the AeroShell Aerobatic Team, performing precision formation aerobatics in four red-and-white AT-6 “Texans” — advanced trainers originally used during World War II and into the 1950s by the U.S. Army Air Forces, the Navy and the Royal Air Force. The AeroShell team last appeared at Air Fiesta in 2010, said Air Fiesta Chairman David Hughston.
“These guys are so easy to work with and so nice,” he said. “It really is a pleasure to have them. We’re excited about that. They’re some of the best anywhere.”
