Event description

Description

Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Houston Wing will host the popular Warbird Weekend at their museum at the West Houston Airport April 13th and 14th. The B-17 Texas Raiders, along with the only flying SB2C dive-bomber Helldiver, replica Japanese Zeros from the TORA TORA TORA performance unit and the Vietnam era CH-46 “Sea Knight” helicopter will all be in attendance. Various WWII warbirds will be on display and available for public flights and visiting aircraft will offer cockpit tours for the entire weekend.

This year the Lone Star Classic Chevy Convention car show will also take place during the Warbird Weekend. The Chevy Convention will include over 50 classic Chevrolet cars from 1955-1957.

For the past 17 years, Warbird Weekend (formerly known as Open House) has emerged as one of the most entertaining annual World War II and 1940s themed events in Houston. It is a can’t-miss experience for anyone who enjoys nostalgia, historic aircraft and military vehicles and antique cars. Families will also enjoy reenactors from the 6th Cavalry in authentic uniforms with restored ground vehicles and an anti-aircraft gun mount from the Battleship Texas. Local vocal artist Maria Thorne will perform Big Band standards from the 1940s both days. Warbird Weekend is an excellent way to honor the heroes of the Greatest Generation and educate all ages about the WWII experience and the technology of aviation.
