The Wings Over Gillespie Airshow is always a great family event. There will be armored vehicles for the kids to climb on, a climbing wall, stage shows and interviews each day. Always plenty of vendors with great food and merchandise. Some aircraft will be selling rides, while others will have walkthrough tours.

Some of last years highlights were: Julie Clark in her T-34, the EAA's B-17 Sentimental Journey and a sneak pass by a MiG-21. Always lots of Warbirds, Hellcat, Bearcat, Wildcat, Mustang a Corsair and much more including an amazing demonstration by Skyraider Bob in his Skyraider. He tore up the sky and really thrilled the crowed!
