Warbirds Over Monroe air show is coming soon, more than 40 WWII aircraft, re-enactors, children's activities and vendors will gather at the

Charlotte-Monroe Executive Airport to take part in this family-friendly annual event.

The air show, which takes place on Veteran‟s Day Weekend, honors our nation's service men and women and is an excellent venue for educating all who come about the bravery and sacrifices of our armed forces.

There will also be P-51 Mustangs, giving guests a glimpse of high-speed precision flying at its best, as well as a C-47 that flew in Normandy, Huey and Cobra helicopters, Douglas C-54, Pitts Biplanes, T-6 Texans, 450 Stearman, SBDs, and, of course, Monroe's very own C-46 The Tinker Belle.

Another treat this year will be a jet powered pickup truck that “fly” down the runway at nearly 320 miles per hour as it races

a plane.

Guests are encouraged to talk with the pilots and learn the history of each

aircraft. There will also be opportunities to speak with men and women in uniform and

to thank them for their service.

“This event is one of the best educational opportunities around to teach the

younger generation about the sacrifices an

d accomplishments our service men and

women have made to ensure our freedoms,” said Pete Hovanec, event organizer. “Historically, the event is great, but there is also a "Wow" factor that will leaving you gasping for air as you see what these amazing aircraft are capable of.”

Warbirds Over Monroe is also pleased to welcome the US Army Aviation Heritage Foundation, which will present a stunning Vietnam helicopter battle re-enactment as well as Huey and Cobra helicopter rides for the whole family.
