The seventh annual Virginia Air Show and USO Show is coming to Warren County Saturday September 13th at the Front Royal-Warren County Airport. (Click here for a Map and Directions.)
This year’s barnstorming extravaganza features the famed Bealton Flying Circus with comedy acts wing walking and more, heart stopping aerobatic performances by Bill Finagin, a world renowned aerobatic pilot with his bright red Pitts Special and Scott Francis in his composite MXS, the return of “Double Trouble” (P-51D), gliders, R/C jets, a quad copter, gyro copters, and more. It’s no wonder that the Virginia Department Of Aviation (VDOA) representatives have called this show the most diverse group of aircraft flying at any show.
This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang which got it’s name from the P-51 Mustang aircraft of World War II. The aircraft will arrive Friday September 12th and stay through Sunday September 14th. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Mustang owners to get a photograph with their car next to the P-51 aircraft. Please call to arrange a time for your photograph. Our sponsors, the Mid-Atlantic Ford dealers, promise to bring an array of vehicles to display along with Rolls Royce from Moyer Motor cars.
The 3rd annual USO Show and Dance will be held the same day as the air show from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm with a return performance by “Jump Alley” and the Hagerstown Lindy Hop dance troop plus a special performance by a new trio. Held hangar side this event continues to grow in popularity and comes complete with vintage aircraft, military vehicles, a hot air balloon glow (weather permitting), food, beer, wine, door prizes and even dance cards for the ladies. Half of all USO ticket sales go directly to support our troops through the Washington Metropolitan USO.
