Description

Kicking off Memorial Day weekend and recognize first responders, essential workers, and veterans, the Town of Addison and Cavanaugh Flight Museum join forces for an “Addison’s Salute to Heroes” flyover that will take to the skies at 11am on Friday, May 22.

The flyover will consist of a collection of the historic warplanes from Cavanaugh’s extensive collection, including a B-25, P-40 and T-6 formation, as well as a rarely seen privately owned Beechcraft Starship (one of four in the world), T-28, and the T-37 Tweet owned by the Service Air Corps.

After passing a cadre of Addison first responders gathered on the ramp at Cavanaugh Flight Museum, the planes will take off from Addison Airport at 11am and gather in air space north of the town. The formation will circle seven area hospitals and fly down Belt Line Road as well as Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery.

The planes will fly over Addison once more as they prepare for landing at the Addison airport at approximately 12:30pm. Addison Airport partnered with locally-based Million Air Dallas to provide fuel for the flyover.
