Stay home! The flyover is coming to you!
In honor of those that served and sacrificed during WWII, and to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day, the Lone Star Flight Museum and its supporting partners will fly nearly 30 rare and historic warbirds over the City of Houston in an epic aviation event called the Fight to the Finish Flyover.
Take off from Ellington Airport and fly a 120-mile flight plan over the skies of the Greater Houston area. This historic flight will last just over one hour, landing back at Ellington Airport.
The fleet of more than two dozen historic warbirds includes: B-25 ‘Devil Dog’, P-51 Mustang, T-6 Texan, BT-13 Valiant, L-17 Navion, T-34 Mentor, Beechcraft BE-18 and A-36 Bonanza. Additional, pending aircraft: Grumman HU-16 Albatross, Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, Bell P-63 King Cobra, Japanese Zero replica, North American T-28. The aircraft lineup is subject to change.
All partners volunteered their time and resources to make this event possible.
