Wings Over Houston 2011

PFLUGERVILLE, TX – October 28, 2011 – If you missed the 2011 Wings Over Houston air show, or just want a second look, LiveAirShowTV has your solution.  Highlights from the entire weekend are now posted on the LiveAirShowTV web site.  “This was another great show at Ellington Field”, says LiveAirShowTV President Jeff Lee.  “Over the years we’ve had strong winds, and clouds, but this was almost perfect conditions.  On top of that, they had a great line up to suit almost every aviation taste.”

In addition to seeing aerial displays by military and civilian acts, LiveAirShowTV talked with Jason Newburg, Kirby Chambliss, and Red Bull helicopter pilot Chuck Aaron.  The American Airpower Demonstration is always a highlight that featured Tora Tora Tora, an actual Japanese Zero, one of only two flying B-24’s, and the world’s only flying B-29 “FIFI”.

The Tuskegee Airmen’s “Rise Up” travelling display was on the ramp, and several Tuskegee Airmen were there to see the presentation and stopped for a few minutes to talk with us.  Watch for profiles and extended stories from these interviews during the air show off-season.

As the season winds down, there is still plenty of coverage from LiveAirShowTV.  The 30th Anniversary of the El Paso Amigo Airsho was held last weekend, and highlights from that show are on the way.  Will Whiteside set a speed record in “Steadfast” at the Bonneville Salt Flats, and he talked with LiveAirShowTV’s Mark Allen.  Fans will also hear directly from the Huey helicopter crew that jumped into action following the crash at the Reno Air Races to get the first victims to the hospital.  It’s an amazing story. 

Special thanks to friend and former co-worker Robert Boggs who came over from Beaumont to join our crew.
