Wings Over Dallas:

The Commemorative Air Force (CAF), the world’s largest flying museum, presents the 3nd annual CAF Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow on October 25-27, 2019 at Dallas Executive Airport. Once again, we will host an “Education Day,” the Friday of Airshow weekend. This is a no-cost, field trip opportunity providing your students a chance to experience World War II history up close and personal. CAF Wings Over Dallas is where history roars off the pages of the textbook and features living history displays and veterans who can share their personal with young people.

Our airshows feature amazing, dramatic flying acts. This year’s show also sees the return of hands-on education activities through the Aviation Discovery Zone.

The CAF is committed to providing quality educational experience for area students and is excited to invite local schools and home educators.
