Discount advance tickets still on sale
This year's show, which is beginning its fifth decade of excitement and entertainment for Space Coast residents and visitors, will commemorate America's valiant Pacific Theater military aviators and their magnificent airplanes. The show's headliner, the Tora Tora Tora reenactment team, will bring their nine replica Japanese warplanes for their legendary Pearl Harbor attack recreation.
Other World War II aircraft expected for the show include the P-51 Mustang and F4U Corsair fighters, the B-25 Mitchell medium bomber, and, just confirmed, the most evocative of all American warbirds, the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, in fact, the exact B-17 that portrayed the legendary "Memphis Belle" in the 1990 movie! Rides on this classic airplane will be available for purchase.
Lovers of more modern aircraft won't be disappointed, as the US Air Force's Viper East F-16 demonstration shows off the maneuverability and capability of the mighty Fighting Falcon. Visitors can see and tour over fifty vintage and current airplanes, including for the first time the Air Force's massive and capable C-17 Globemaster II. Reenactors will demonstrate vintage military equipment while a carnival awaits kids of all ages.
Advance discount tickets are on sale at the Valiant Air Command website, at local Regions' Bank locations, at the Titusville, Cocoa Beach and Melbourne Chamber of Commerce offices, and at the Patrick AFB ticket office, and of course at the Warbird Museum, at 6600 Tico Road, on the Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville.
