It’s time to take flight and soar above the clouds at one of the top air shows in the United States. As a premier Houston event, the beloved annual Wings Over Houston Airshow is dedicated to showcasing vintage World War II aircrafts, along with the thrills of modern aviation, and has supported local and national charities for over 37 years.
Wings Over Houston Airshow
Headlining this year’s event is the famous Blue Angels, the United States Navy’s flight demonstration squadron that consists of Navy and Marine pilots flying Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornets.
Other shows and attractions include the USAF F-16 Viper Demo, RE/MAX Skydiving Team, “Tora Tora Tora,” modern aviation and warbird ramp displays, a Legends & Heroes autograph tent, a kid’s carnival, merch booths, and more. This favorite annual event is a must-see-and-do for the whole family.
