Though you won't unlock the airship until you're closer to the end of your life's role-playing game, today's side deal lets your eyes, ears, and tongue experience some of the most unusual aircraft that soar the open skies. For $6, you score a ticket to the QuikTrip Air and Rocket Racing Show on Saturday, April 24, (a $13 value). The Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium is hosting the event and will open the gates at 9:30 a.m.
The QuikTrip Air and Rocket Racing Show lets you both experience aviation history and catch a glimpse into the future of flight. The event schedule offers flylights such as aerobatic performances, wing walkers, military demonstrations, and an extraordinary flyover by a B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber. The air show will also exhibit the Rocket Racing League. Dubbed "NASCAR with rockets," the league features rocket-propelled X-Racers that produce up to 2,500 pounds of thrust, emit 10–15-foot-long flames, and produce roaring echoes heard miles away as they compete in ground-breaking sky races. Whether you are Howard Hughes or a grounded goon, the QuikTrip Air and Rocket Racing Show is an exciting location to be awestricken by adventurous aviators performing amazing aerials.
- The April show is the biggest event planned so far by The Tulsa Air and Space Museum. While the QuikTrip Air and Rocket Racing Show will feature more traditional air show acts, like wing walkers and acrobatics, the Rocket Racers are expected to attract people from all over. – Emory Bryan, KOTV
- A big attraction is added to this month's Air and Rocket Racing Show. Tulsa Air and Space Museum Executive Director Jim Bridenstine says they've been able to secure fly bys from a B-2 Stealth Bomber. Bridenstine says he's been told Highway 169 turned into a parking lot the last time a B-2 did touch and goes at Tulsa International Airport because people were pulling over to watch. – Paul Crockett, KRMG Radio
