How Cool is This! Texas Flying Legends Airshow Joins PBR!
Penobscot Bay organizers announce that the world famous Texas Flying Legends Museum will perform at the 2012 Penobscot Bay Rendezvous on Friday, August 17th at 11:30am. The public will have a perfect view of the airshow from the Rockland Breakwater.
Based out of Ellington Field in Houston, Texas, the Texas Flying Legends Museum flies their growing collection of aircraft from Texas to Minot, North Dakota each spring, to Wiscasset, Maine each summer, and back to Texas in the fall. The group acquires the best flying WWII aircraft available today and campaign these Flying Legends with a sense of inspiration for those who are not aware or involved in the great history of the United States, and most importantly, honor the many that are.
The museum’s planes participating in the airshow are: B-25 – Betty’s Dream, P-40K – Aleutian Tiger, P-51D – Dakota Kid II, FG-1D Corsair – Whistling Death, and A6-M2 Japanese Zero – Last Samurai. Information on the Texas Flying Legends Museum can be found at www.flyingfreedom.us.
After the ½ hour airshow, the public should stick around to watch some great sailboat racing as the start the first day of racing will get underway immediately following the air show.
Presented by Wayfarer Marine and Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding, last year’s inaugural event was just what the organizers, participants and sponsors hoped for: great weather for racing and power boat events, a fantastic mix of sail and power boats, and three nights of fabulous parties.
