Air Shows are second only to Major League Baseball in number of attendees each year across North America. For
over 100 years, Air Shows have provided the general public with the fascination of flight ranging from the Barnstormers
of the 1920's to the precision aerobatics of space-age technological aircraft of today.
It has been well over 20 Years since Racine, Wisconsin has seen a world-class Air Show. Starting in the summer of 2020 Air Shows will once again be a part of the southeastern Wisconsin family of outdoor entertainment.

F-22 & P-51 HERITAGE FLIGHT
USAF Heritage Flight is short for the United States Air Force Heritage Flight. It was created in 1997 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the United States Air Force. It incorporates fighters from World War II, the Vietnam War, the Korean War and other conflicts in which the USAF has been involved.
The USAF Heritage Flight formation will normally consist of two or more aircraft representing the different eras of operations, making three passes past the spectators. There will be one pass each from the right and left and then a final pass from behind the crowd with the aircraft performing a separation maneuver to create separation between the aircraft followed a few seconds later by a single simultaneous aileron roll by all the aircraft in the flight.
USAF Heritage Flight performed at the Wings Over Houston air show. Aircraft in the formation from top to bottom are P-51D Mustang, P-47D Thunderbolt, F-4G Phantom II, and F-22A Raptor
During the flypasts there is a musical accompaniment played through the public address system. The music that is normally played is "We Remember" by Dwayne O'Brian.
After the roll maneuver each of the aircraft will then enter the airfield traffic pattern, typically performing an individual pass before the crowd and then "pitching out" into an approach pattern and landing.
The specifics of the performance such as the roll and individual pass and landing may be modified by the weather and whether or not the local runway can safely handle the aircraft (adequate runway length) and if the airport has proper ground support equipment available..
