BROWNSVILLE – Air Fiesta 2014, sponsored by the Commemorative Air Force Rio Grande Valley Wing, takes place on Feb. 22 and 23. A wide range of vintage and acrobatic planes are featured in the air show.
Performers will include the Aeroshell Aerobatic team, known for tight, awe-inspiring formations and aerial maneuvers at airshows across the nation.
The Aeroshell team flies North American AT-6 Texans, known as the “pilot makers.” The plane was designed as the basic training plane for the United States Army Air Corps in 1938 and was the primary training plane used for World War II pilots.
