“Wings over Waukesha” returns June 25–27 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at the Waukesha County Airport (UES) in Wisconsin. Celebrating the 75th anniversaries of both the airport and the B-17 bomber this year, the event, which drew more than 7,000 people in 2009, will once again feature a variety of World War II aircraft on display, formation flights over the airport, Flight for Life, hot air balloons, numerous military and aviation displays, and refreshments.
The cornerstone of the ”Wings over Waukesha” event will be the “Aluminum Overcast” B-17 bomber, which is on tour from the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Museum in Oshkosh, and will be available for rides and tours. Several crew members who flew in the B-17 during World War II will also be at the event to offer their first-hand accounts of what it was like to fly the B-17. A commemorative poster featuring the “Aluminum Overcast” will be available for sale at the event.
