The Biggest Little Airshow is slated for Aug. 8-9 at the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.
The airshow will feature the motorized-flyable models of military aircraft dating from World War II to the present, along with period military vehicles courtesy of the Hawaii Historic Arms Association and the Hawaii Military Vehicle Preservation Association. The museum’s F-14 Tomcat fighter plane and T-6 Texan will be on the tarmac as The Birds of Paradise dog fight with their massive remote controlled 1/5 scale planes for the crowd.
The airshow is free with paid museum admission. Due to the popularity of the initial event in March, the August show has been expanded, adding more planes, lots of dogfights, and another day of fun, food and festivities.
At the event, some visitors will have a chance to pilot a remote control aircraft and take tours of the Restoration Hangar that still bears the bullet holes of the Dec. 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor. Inside, they’ll see helicopters, fighter planes and a 1941 machine shop busy restoring the museum’s aircraft.
The Flight line opens at 10 a.m. with a traditional military color guard and all aircraft on display. The aerial demonstrations are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
