Corsicana AirSho salutes military war birds

Corsicana — The 15th Annual Corsicana AirSho opens to the public at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at C. David Campbell Field at the Corsicana Airport.

The Coyote Squadron of the Commemorative Air Force will present an amazing lineup of new and vintage aircraft in the show that has come to be called “The Best Little Airshow in Texas.”

The Corsicana AirSho promises to be nothing less than action packed, with a roster of entertainers including a plethora of historic airplanes — A26 “Three Wars” from the Dallas area, “Happy Jack’s Go Buggy” P51, Mark Howard’s PT26 from Tulsa, Bob Dunn’s PT19 from Nacogdoches, Billy and Jana Copeland’s L19 “Bird Dog” from Paris, Texas, a BT15 and PT17 Stearman from the DFW Wing in Lancaster, and many more.

Visitors are encouraged to bring folding chairs, blankets, and plenty of sunscreen. Vendors will be set up, and food and drink will be available for purchase at the event.  

The AirSho will also include a variety of aerobatic and pyrotechnic displays. Paul Fiala’s Aerobatic act, Falcon Flight and the Texas V-Tails Formation Flight teams, and the Trojan Phlyers Flight Demonstration Team are scheduled to perform.  

The Coyote Squadron is selling rides in its PT-19 for $150 and several other war birds will be onsite with rides available for purchase.  

Admission to the AirSho is $5 per person or $10 per car. Admission for veterans and active military personnel and their families is free.
