Saturday and Sunday, April 20 & 21 those big, old airplanes with the mighty round engines will be flying again as the Commemorative Air Force’s Houston Wing presents its 2013 Open House at Hangar B-5, West Houston Airport. Get up close and feel the prop wash and hear the noise as radial engines power these WWII aircraft. See some of the old planes your father, grandfather or grandmother learned to fly for World War II. April 20 & 21 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
A $10.00 donation per car earns you a day of aircraft and military vehicle displays, museum exhibits and fun.

Talk to the pilots who flew them then and fly them now.
