This years Warbirds over Salem will be a joint task force operation with Commando Supply & the Roanoke Military Vehicle club. They will be on site with static displays and full scale military vehicles, as well as the presence of some true Veterans of our great nation.
The 8th Air Force Fellowship and the Danville Tank museum have been invited to join us at Warbirds over Salem as well.
Sending her blessing for good flights and happy landings will be the widow of Maj. Fred O “Blue Eagle” Willson, WWII Tuskegee Airman.
Come meet the Bombshell’s of Virginia! The girls will be here posing with the planes, pilots, military vehicles and spectators alike.
For the kids, we have a bounce house, camo face painting, coloring books, and games.
Foamy aircraft battle to the death! Competitors will be encouraged to use your aircrafts as flying death machines! Ram and crash the enemy out of the sky! All aircraft must be made of foam and be electric powered. It does not have to be military scheme but it is preferred . All planes will take off within seconds of each other and race to the skies. Last aircraft flying wins. Rules: you can’t leave the designated arena! Feel free to modify your aircraft with wood dowel rods or hobby carbon fiber spars. No metal or sharp objects! There is only one round and the pilot of the last plane flying will be presented with a trophy. Good luck!!!
