More than 100 pilots from across the country will entertain audiences as they perform skillful maneuvers with RC jets, warbirds, bombers, helicopters and gliders from all eras of aviation history.

The event, which is open to the public with free admission and parking, is brought to you in part by the Dayton Ohio Giant Scalers and the generous support of the Air Force Museum Foundation, Inc. (Federal endorsement is not implied). Food and merchandise will be available for purchase.

Those interested in attending the show must enter through the main museum gate off Springfield Street, and follow the signs to the event area behind the museum. Visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets.
