Ministry Wings Aviation Announces September Air Show

AMARILLO – July 23, 2012 Ministry Wings Aviation, a local ministry connecting corporate aircraft with sick kids, ministries, and humanitarian causes, announces its first-ever “Air Fair and Car-nival” air and car show on Saturday, September 8, at River Falls Airport east of Tanglewood Lake.

This free event, open to the public from 9:45 am to 4 pm, features a variety of flying performances, including pilot Ron Cain and his de Havilland Chipmunk (a post World War II military training aircraft), Scott Lane and his Pitts S2B, a Supermarine Spitfire aircraft, a T-34 Mentor military training aircraft, and a large-scale remote-control (RC) aircraft display by Johnny and Mark Cavitt. Texas Department of Public Service and LifeStar helicopters will also make appearances.

Held alongside the air show, the car show features a variety of vintage and contemporary automobiles, trucks, motorcycles, and RC aircraft. A silent auction, food, and entertainment from the local band Lifeless to Live will also be part of the festivities.

According to Justin Miller, Executive Director of Ministry Wings Aviation, general admission is free but donations will be accepted. “Amarillo has a fantastic air and road culture—from old Route 66 and the air base to Bell Helicopter—and we want to celebrate it with a fun family event,” Miller says. “We hope it will connect the local public with the many aircraft and vehicle enthusiasts in this area.”

General admission to the show is free, but donations will be accepted.
