Monroe NC Air Show Honors Military Veterans

I joined thousands of other people yesterday at the Warriors and Warbirds Air Show in Monroe NC.  With brilliant Carolina blue skies overhead, we all enjoyed the display of vintage airplanes from the World War II  to Korea and Vietnam eras.

The Charlotte-Monroe Executive Airport opened at 9am with the airplanes parked around the grounds.  We could get up close to see the planes that would be flown overhead in the afternoon.  Two restored planes, the Spirit of Freedom and the Tinker Belle, were open for interior tours. The Spirit of Freedom is one of the planes that took part in the Berlin Airlift.  The Tinker Belle is a cargo plane that flew over the Himalayas during World War II.

At noon, the air show began with four jumpers landing in front of the crowd.  Then the vintage planes began to take off with aerobatics and fly-bys.  Four hours of air show kept the crowd fascinated.

The Warriors and Warbirds Air Show is an annual event sponsored by the City of Monroe.  It’s held every November to honor military veterans.  The Air Show is Monroe’s largest event and quite appropriate for a city that has the largest aerospace manufacturing industry in the southeast.

Take a video tour of the Warriors and Warbirds Air Show here.
