Recognized as one of America’s premiere aviation event for more than 50 years, AirSho is held at the Commemorative Air Force Headquarters in Midland, Texas.  Each year, war birds gather to reenact historic battles at AirSho, a fitting tribute to American airpower and to those who fought to secure America’s freedom.  They plan to continue that proud tradition this year with their B-29’s back in the skies, a pyrotechnic nighttime display and a battle of pirates to take place in the air, the presided and CEO of the Commemorative Air Force said they’ve crafted a unique experience for this year AirSho.

FiFi, the CAF’s B-29 has undergone about$1.5 million in restoration work to make it airworthy after being ground for several years.  CEO Stephan Brown says that he’s excited that the B-29 FiFi returns to flight.  With 10,000 attendees at last years show, Brown says they’re anticipating “record” attendance this year – especially with the beautiful cooperating weather we’ve been getting lately.

Saturday night the Retro USO Show is returning and then will be followed by a night show featuring aircraft with light, smoke and pyrotechnics.  Sunday, World War II reenacters will host a worship service reminiscent of those that occurred in the fields during the war. 

Excitingly, our local businesses like The Barn Door and Carino’s in Midland were the featured vendors at the AirSho this year.  It’s important that Permian Basin companies are involved with events like these and organizations like the Commemorative Air Force.  Western National Bank returned as a sponsor of the show along with several others and Senior Vice President of lending at Western National Bank Marshall Vicknair reminds us that it contributes to “our local quality of life.”  I couldn’t have said it better myself.  Participate in our community and come and enjoy the 2010 Permian Basin’s Airsho.
