Addison's "Salute To Heroes" Flyover

Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate TX #0552717


A week or so ago,  The Blue Angels did a flyover cross the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but we couldn't see them in Addison. The Town of Addison and Cavanaugh Flight Museum, located in Addison, have teamed up for an Addison Salute to Heroes flyover to recognize first responders, veterans, and essential workers. Look upwards in Addison on Friday, May 22, 2020 at 11:00 am. 

Some of the historic war planes from the Cavanaugh Museum's collection flying over will include a B-25, P-40, T-6, T-28, a T-37 owned by the Service Air Corps, and a privately owned Beechcraft Starship. Addison based Million Air Dallas generously provided the fuel for the flyover.Addison Flyover - Salute to Heroes

The planes will take off from Addison Airport where some of Addison's first responders will be watching from the ramp at the Flight Museum. The pilots will head north of the airport, fly over Beltline Road, and fly over 7 area hospitals and the DFW National Cemetery before landing back at Addison Airport around 12:30 pm.


Here's the approximate timeline for the planned route:

11:30   Carrollton Regional Medical Center

11:34    Texas Health Presbyterian Plano

11:37    Beltline Road

11:40    Baylor Scott and White Plano

11:45    Medical City Dallas

11:48    Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas

11:52    Baylor University Medical Center

11:57    VA North Texas Health Care

12:03    DFW National Cemetery

12:10    Dallas Love Field


This flyover will kick off Memorial Day weekend. Stay safe and healthy everyone! And huge thanks to those who keep us safe and healthy!

I love the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds BUT really enjoy the vintage military aircraft when they are flying.

Doug Dawes The museum usually brings them out and flies them on July 3rd for our KaboomTown Independence Day celebration, but it doesn't look like that will happen this year. The event draws about a half million people to the area and it's just not safe. This will have to suffice.
