GENESEO – The National Warplane Museum has announced that the official theme of their 2015 airshow will be “A Salute to First Responders.”
According to a press release from Julie Rudd, The Salute to First Responders will take place throughout the day on Saturday, July 11.
“The National Warplane Museum is well-known for our support of veterans, and we’re proud of the bonds we’ve formed with some outstanding groups through the museum,” said museum president Austin Wadsworth. “We’re equally mindful of, and grateful to, the first responders who protect us and keep us safe during times of crisis and need here at home.”
As always, many shows and demonstrations are planned, as well as a fundraising dinner to benefit local first responders, including fire departments, emergency medical services, and law enforcement. As the sun sets over the museum’s airfield, Jerry “Jive” Kerby and his RV-8A aircraft, Wild Blue, will present a colorful aerobatic adventure in the sky, followed by a Skylighters pyro-musical tribute to our men and women in all forms of service to our country.
Founded in 1994, the National Warplane Museum is a nonprofit organization passionate about educating the public on aviation, aviation history and warplanes. It is also dedicated to the restoration, preservation, display, and flight of aircrafts from the World War II and Korean War eras, as well as the recognition of all United States Military personnel for their service and sacrifice.
Tickets can be purchased at Wegmans stores, and at the gate on Airshow dates. Discounted tickets are available here.
