CAF Wings Over Houston Airshow: One Of The Best Airshows In The Country

-

The CAF Wings Over Houston Airshow came to town with a big bang! Rated as one of the best airshows to attend, there were many spectacular and breathtaking aerial displays. From World War I ere planes to the modern and stealthy F35A Lightning II, there were all kinds of planes that spanned aviation history. For Houstonians, this is one of the highlights of the year and attracts thousands of spectators over the the course of the 2 day event. The experience is unforgettable and the vibrations and roars of the porwerful engines can be felt, even days after the spectacle!

One of the highlights and the main event of the airshow, was seeing the performance of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels! Houston doesn't get to see them every year so this was a great year to be at the WOH Airshow! They performed extremely skilled and coordinated maneuvers that had everyone on the edge of their seat! The Blue Angels were not the only ones that stole the show! The heritage flight is one of my favorite displays of the whole show! It's not your usual airshow that will allow you to see a P47 Thunderbolt, an F-16 Fighting Falcon and a new F-35A Lightning II !! This shows how flight and avaition has changed over the course of almost 100 years!! Amazing. Other performances were by, the U.S. Coast Guard, The Aeroshells, Team Oracle, and a rare German Me262 jet fighter to name just a few! Don't miss out on next years Airshow, you may catch the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and many more classic and legendary planes!!

I first went to the Wings Over Houston Airshow over 7 years ago and I could still remember how the pyrotechnics of the Tora Tora Tora Airshow made me feel! It's a sight to behold! You will leave the airshow with a new experience and feel for years. This year was also the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor and everyone put their heart and passion behind this reenactment. There is no real way to bring you the experience, not even video can capture the full experience, but they can bring you closer to the real things than pictures could. Below you can find pictures and some clips of the CAF Wings Over Houston Airshow!
