The airshow portion of the event will include incredible performances by some of the best solo and team aerobatic pilots in America, skydiving demonstrations and static displays of the classic warbirds that won our freedom in World War II – as well as those defending that freedom today.
Schedule to be announced!
Red Bull AirForce
The Red Bull Air Force is a team assembled from the most accomplished and experienced aviation experts on the planet. They specialize in highly coordinated aerial jump demonstrations and continually push the limits of human flight. Their mission is to push the limits of human flight. They continually rethink what is possible and envision a world where all people live with boldness. They strive to bring that to reality. It starts with a core belief. They believe that humans were always meant to fly. We relentlessly pursue that which is thought impossible. And then they go and do it. Come witness these great artists defy gravity in San Marcos, TX!
B-17 TEXAS RAIDERS
It has been 70 years since the last B-17 lifted into the air during WWII to join the largest air armada ever to fill the skies, but on Friday May 3 the four giant Wright-Cyclone engines of Texas Raiders, a fully restored B-17 Flying Fortress will be roaring over San Marcos, TX. Of the 12,731 B-17s built across during WWII, only 9 are actively flying—including Texas Raiders, which is part of the Commemorative Air Force. One of the last flying examples of the famous aircraft arrives Friday May 3 in San Marcos to participate in the Go Wheels Up Airshow and Festival.
Re-live history and ride in the most awe-inspiring fighter of World War II. This unique in-the-air experience allows you to experience the sights and sounds, the smell and feel of what it was like to fly the P-51 Mustang. Your pilot will take you through it’s paces, and give you a running dialogue to help make the most of this historical experience.
Don’t miss this “once-in-a-lifetime” experience. It is a definite must for your bucket list.
