Canadian CF-18 Will Join US Military Planes At Inaugural
Branson Airport officials announced Monday an addition to the
lineup scheduled to perform at the first ever Branson Air Show, May
9 & 10, 2009. The Canadian Air Force will bring a CF-18 Hornet
fighter to the event, in celebration of Canada's 100th anniversary
of powered flight.
The jet will perform several maneuvers during its eye-opening
tactical display. Also added to the air show lineup are a US Navy
F-18 Hornet and US Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to visit the Virtual
Army Experience (VAE), which provides participants with a virtual
test drive of the United States Army. The core of the
9,750-square-foot VAE is the America's Army computer game, rendered
with state-of-the-art Army training simulation technology to create
a life-size, networked virtual world.
These aircraft and exhibits join an impressive list of America's
top air show performers, including the USAF Thunderbirds, US Army
Golden Knights, Aeroshell Aerobatic Team, Manfred Radius, Patty
Wagstaff, John Klatt (Air National Guard) and many more, all
providing stunning displays of aerial acrobatics at this must-see
The show will also feature B-17, B-25, P-51 Mustang, Sea Fury,
P-47 and Corsair static displays. The Branson Air Show will
highlight the grand opening weekend of the Branson Airport, the
first privately developed and operated commercial service airport
in the United States.
