Warbirds in Review

History through legendary wartime aircraft and pride of the heroic veterans who flew them comes alive every day at the popular Warbirds in Review, held Monday through Saturday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Warbird Alley.

Hosted by the EAA Warbirds of America, these informal sessions not only delve into an aircraft's restoration, operation, and other aspects of owning a valued piece of history, but also spotlight veterans sharing stories about what it was like to fly the aircraft in combat or support the operation as a ground crew member.

Presentations will be immediately followed by book signing opportunities in the Warbirds Merchandise Building. Check the schedule in the Warbirds Merchandise Building for featured books.

At 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. each day, the Warbirds Living History Group will entertain the crowd, showcasing their authentic uniforms and flight gear.

They will be followed by 1940s-style singer Theresa Eaman beginning at 9:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Theresa has been singing jazz standards since she was a teenager and specializes in performing songs from the 1920s to the 1960s. Her performances pay tribute to the eras when music evoked various emotions in people.
