Rose City Airfest soaring to Tyler Pounds Regional Airport

CampV and the Historic Aviation Memorial Museum (HAMM) are kicking off 4th of July celebrations with the Rose City Airfest on Friday, July 1 at Tyler Pounds Regional Airport.

WWII Warbirds will soar and roar into HAMM at 150 Airport Blvd. in Tyler for the second year. Performers will include Randy Ball’s Russian MiG17, a variety of vintage warbird planes and demo teams for the A-10 Thunderbolt, P51 Mustang, and the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team plus more. The featured performer will be a B-29 Superfortress “Doc,” one of only two B-29s still flying in the U.S.

Many of the airshow planes will be available to tour and purchase rides at the exhibit.

Rose City Airfest tickets purchased by June 30 are $25 for one adult general admission plus one free child’s (12 and under) entry. Extra child’s tickets cost $5. On July 1, tickets will be $30 for adults with one free child’s admission. The proceeds from Rose City Airfest will primarily benefit Camp V, an all-inclusive veteran’s support center in Tyler.
