Bring your earplugs – Wings Over Houston this weekend!

Oh man, I love airshows!!!! This weekend’s 22nd Annual Wings Over Houston (at Ellington Field) should be a good one with the USAF Thunderbirds as the main event (with a female pilot flying in formation for the first time). Also expect B-25, B1-B, P-51, helicopter and many many other fly-bys. Eardrum-blasting fun!!

There will be a Tora! Tora! WWII fighter plane re-enactment and various aerobatics shows – all of which are always a lot of fun, if not a bit breathtaking, to watch. Tickets are $15-$125 and you can buy them online here if you don’t feel standing in line.

    I love air shows too. I saw the Reno Air Races in September for the first time. Haven’t been to Ellington in five years though. Hmmm..
