On my continued attempt to discover Texas, I found myself in Lancaster, Tx at the WarBirds on Parade air show this weekend.
I’m a sucker for flying, I’ve always enjoyed the escape of just being in the air and the change of view.
The airshow was put on by the The Commemorative Air Force, an educational organization dedicated to the preservation of the great combat aircraft of World War II, and a portion of our military aviation heritage.
It wasn’t an air show in the traditional sense, but many planes took off and landed throughout the event….creating great visual entertainment.
Planes from across decades, a Russian fighter and Russian helicopter, as well as opportunities to ride a classic plane, and a pretty collection of classic cars were spread out on the tarmac at the airport.
The event was very family friendly, $10 a car/$5 person. They were also very proactive to keep people hydrated with multiple water stations throughout the event and the water wasn’t overpriced! (Can you say, $1!). The hanger had $6 plates of food, with a BBQ sandwich, bag of chips, and drink….and there was great music playing the entire day.
A great opportunity for a Saturday!
