The CAF Wings Over Houston Airshow is an IRC 501(c)(3) community event presented by the volunteer efforts of the Houston Wing, Gulf Coast Wing, and Tora! Tora! Tora! of the Commemorative Air Force, with support from the Lone Star Flight Museum, Collings Foundation-Houston based at Ellington Airport, and the Vietnam War Flight Museum. One of the top air shows in the United States, this premier Houston event is dedicated to showcasing vintage World War II aircraft, along with the thrills of modern aviation, and has supported a variety of local and national charities during its 35-year history.
The Wings Over Houston Airshow is a production of the Commemorative Air Force, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It is one of the largest civic events in Metropolitan Houston.
The Wings Over Houston Airshow proceeds are used to sponsor the Wings Over Houston Scholarship Program for college students studying for careers in aviation, Aviation Career Education (ACE) Summer Academy for high school juniors and seniors interested in aviation, Commemorative Air Force aircraft restoration and flying historical programs, Exchange Club of Sugar Land, Rotary Club, and many other area non-profit groups.
The annual Airshow is held at the City of Houston’s Ellington Airport in south Houston. The large air and ground space allows for thrilling flying and ground displays. Held on a Saturday and Sunday in late Fall, the Airshow attracts 90,000 fans who come to the all-day event to see a wide variety of displays.
Additionally, on the Friday preceding the Airshow weekend is our annual invitation-only “SPECIAL SHOW” for physically challenged guests. The Special Show is a smaller version of our annual flying with all the same thrills and thunder but without the crowds.
