The Texas Flying Legends Museum says a vintage WWII Airshow has
been added to the Newport Bucket Regatta immediately following the
races on both Saturday and Sunday, August 27 and 28. The Quonset
Air Museum will host the Texas Flying Legends aircraft and pilots
for these airshows. The Newport Bucket is a grand sailboat regatta
held for the past nine years in Newport.
The Airshow will feature rare WW II vintage aircraft including
one of only two Japanese Zeros still flying in the world (Last
Samurai), a FG-1D Corsair (Whistling Death), a P-40K (Aleutian
Tiger), two P-51D Mustangs (Dakota Kid II & Little Horse) and a
Mitchell B-25 Bomber (Betty’s Dream, pictured). The acrobatic
aircraft will perform an Airshow off Newport Harbor from 1630 to
1700 both days.
The planes and pilots will also be available to the public from
1200 to 1900 both days of the Airshow at the Quonset Air Museum,
488 Eccleston Avenue, North Kingstown, RI.
