The PBJ and a crew of 11 volunteers attended the Wings Over Dallas Air Show last weekend, October 6 – 8, 2017.
To say the CAF Headquarters Airshow in Dallas was a fantastic event would be an understatement. With B29 FiFi, two B17s, six B25s, two A26s and a host of WWII fighters and transport aircraft participating in the show, there was constant activity for three days at the airshow.
We may be biased, but the PBJ was quite a popular attraction and the crew was kept busy full time answering questions, giving aircraft tours and signing up riders. Jason Somes and Charlie Robertson were at the controls of the PBJ and we were specially pleased to have our own Mike Hohls be drafted for duty aboard B-25 “Show Me!” That meant we could take particular pride in two of the Mitchells being put through their paces at the show.
There was no need to bring any of the PBJ merchandise back home either. Any folks who couldn’t get a ride at the venue are looking forward to a SoCal vacation for their ride, or hoping for us to return to the airshow in Dallas in 2018. We certainly hope to be there again. The HQ staff and volunteers, specially all the ground and support crews were super accommodating – we could not have been as successful without their help.
Thanks for a great show Dallas.
See you in 2018.
