Eden Prairie, MN (PRWEB) June 04, 2015
Wings of the North is pleased to announce that AirExpo 2015 will be held July 11-12 at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. As part of the non-profit group's mission to preserve and present aviation history, this year's show promises to be one not to miss. More than 8,000 people are expected to attend this year's show, featuring more than 40 aircraft and 50 aviation dignitaries.
The show has an excellent line of aircraft including several World War II types such as the P-51 Mustang Sierra Sue II, the B-17 Flying Fortress Yankee Lady, the Hawker Sea Fury FB11 SawBones plus many other military and civilian models. The aircraft will be on ground display and some will also perform single-ship and formation fly-overs throughout the weekend's activities. Rides will be for sale on a select few airplanes including the B-17.
A special feature this year is the newly restored P-51D, Sierra Sue II. This beautifully restored warbird will be making her Airshow debut with AirExpo 2015. Restored by Aircorps Aviation of Bemidji Minnesota, it is considered one of the most authentically restored aircraft in the world.
In addition to the amazing line up of aircraft, AirExpo 2015 will also feature Heroes and Legends including Dootlittle Raider Lt. Col. Dick Cole, NASA Space Shuttle Commander Curt Brown, Womens Airforce Service Pilot Liz Strohfus, and many more. The VIPs will be available to meet the public both days at AirExpo 2015 and they will be featured in daily symposiums.
On Saturday, July 11 the VIPs will be seated among the public for the "US Bank Evening with Eagles" dinner event at the Marriott Southwest hotel. After dinner several VIPs will take part in a symposium moderated by Stan Turner, Twin Cities television and radio personality.
