CAF To Showcase Multiple Aircraft At Oshkosh

Fifi Will Headline The Display Late In The Week

The CAF is planning to bring more than 10 of its vintage aircraft to EAA AirVenture 2012 in Oshkosh, WI, which will feature CAF performances new to the event as well as ride opportunities in the B-29.

The CAF's TORA TORA TORA is an aerial re-enactment of the bombing of Pearl Harbor complete with ground-shaking explosions and pyrotechnics that bring history to life for new generations. For the first time in CAF history, TORA performances will take place at AirVenture on Friday and Saturday. The CAF calls the show "one of the most dazzling warbird performances flying today."
 
Throughout the week, the CAF's B-29 Superfortress FIFI will be available for Living History Flight Experiences at Outagamie County Regional Airport in Appleton. The Queen of the CAF Fleet, FIFI will be on display in the Phillips 66 Plaza Thursday and Friday. Attendees can also purchase flights in the B-29 online, or by visiting the CAF Hangar 57 and Rides Tent located at the southeast corner of Phillips 66 Plaza.

Other aircraft scheuduled to be on display include:
CAF Dixie Wing P-51 Mustang Red Nose and Douglas SBD Dauntless Lady in Blue
CAF Indiana Wing Fairchild PT-26 Cornell and Taylorcraft L-2A Grasshopper
CAF Devil Dog Squadron North American PBJ (B-25) Devil Dog
CAF Red Tail Squadron P-51 Mustang Tuskegee Airmen and RISE ABOVE Travelling Exhibit
CAF Wisconsin Wing T-6 and PT-26
CAF Minnesota Wing BT-13
CAF P-51 Gunfighter

In 1957, a small group of ex-service pilots pooled their money to purchase a P-51 Mustang, beginning what is now called the Commemorative Air Force (CAF). With the addition of a pair of F8F Bearcats, the CAF became the founders of the Warbird Movement, an effort to preserve and honor our military history with the rallying cry to "Keep 'Em Flying!" Now, 55 years later, the CAF is the premier Warbird organization, operating 156 vintage aircraft in Honor of American Military Aviation. A non-profit educational association, the CAF has more than 9,000 members and its fleet of historic aircraft is distributed to 74 units located in 27 states for care and operation.
