Each summer, Denton Airport summons aircraft enthusiasts and casual spectators alike for the Denton Airshow's high-flying feats and ground-docked aircraft displays. This year's schedule treats attendees to a full day of performances by professional pilots and their well-trained airplanes. A U.S. Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier II will demonstrate its combat prowess, showing off its vertical takeoff ability and midair hovering. Andrew Wright will also be on hand to pilot his Giles 202 through barrel rolls of 500 degrees per second and swift turns at speeds of up to 250 miles per hour, fast enough to easily escape a speeding ticket from any police blimps.
On the ground, aircraft displays include an F/A-18F Super Hornet, an A-10C Thunderbolt II, a P-40 Warhawk, and more than 30 others. Onlookers can get up close and personal, snapping pictures of engines, wings, and landing gear, or inspecting the planes for performance-enhancing feathers. Though not included with this Groupon, tickets to a breakfast and photo opportunity with pilots at 8:30 a.m. are available for an additional fee at the gate. All proceeds of this breakfast benefit a children's home. The family-friendly airshow also features a children's pavilion, craft vendors, and food concessions in a festival atmosphere.
