Nathan Smith of the Galveston Daily News calls attention to this weekend’s Wings over Houston event:
The roar of jet turbines will be matched only by the roar of the crowd this weekend as the 20th annual Wings Over Houston Airshow takes flight at Ellington Field.
The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds flight team will headline the two-day spectacular, and organizers expect record crowds to take in the sights and sounds of some of the world’s most daring aerial stunts.
A display of the official fighter and bomber teams of the Air Force, Navy and Marines will rip up the sky Saturday and Sunday alongside thunderous turns from the U.S. Navy Official Fighter Demo F-18 Hornet, F-15 Eagle, F-16 Falcon, AH-64 Apache Helicopter and the C-5A Galaxy. The enormous C-17 Globemaster will also make an appearance, and the ground-attack demonstrations involving the A-10 Thunderbolt will be on display, as well.
It should be an impressive demonstration.
The show runs from 8 am to 6pm on Saturday and 8 am to 5pm on Sunday. Full details can be found at the Wings over Houston website.
