Wings Over Houston Highlights

PFLUGERVILLE, TX – NOVEMBER 14, 2012 – Record crowds attended the 2012 Wings Over Houston air show at Ellington Field, in Webster, Texas.  The show featured the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, F-22 Raptor, V-22 Osprey, Breitling’s David Martin, Sean D. Tucker, and warbirds galore.  “This is one of our favorite air shows”, said LiveAirShowTV’s President Jeff Lee.  “The sheer number of warbirds, and great pyro put this show over the top.  Bill Roach and his staff always pull together great air show acts and that combination makes for a great weekend.”

One of many high points in the show happened early in the day.  An actual Japanese Zero, owned by Texas Flying Legends, flew a demo.  That was followed by the CAF Red Tail Squadron’s P-51 C model, flown by Doug Rozendaal. You won’t see these two aircraft at the same show anywhere.

The LiveAirShowTV story also features some never before seen shots from the UACP – Unmanned Aerial Camera Platform, affectionately known as “Marilyn Madrone” from Cinema Air Support of  Texas.  This small hex copter flew out in front of the crowd, and over the taxiway to give viewers unique images of the show.

Also, LiveAirShowTV thanks Ron Carter Automotive Dealership for their sponsorship of our coverage.  Ron Carter was a long time sponsor of the event, and we thank them for helping us bring this coverage to fans all around the world.
