The Wings Over Cullman Air Show on May 21 will provide aid to tornado victims of Cullman County, Alabama, and beyond.
Less than four weeks before the show, violent tornados cut across Alabama leaving Cullman and many communities reeling. Since then, city and county officials have determined the airport and necessary infrastructure is good to go on with the show, according to organizers, who note that not only will the plans continue, but the show is now a venue to help tornado victims.
Mayor Max Townson said, “The show will go on, the people need to have this show.”
Volunteers will be collecting donations and net proceeds from souvenir programs and tshirt sales will go to help those devastated by tornadoes. This could be the first aviation event to help those storm victims in need, organizers said.
Air show fans will enjoy a three hour airshow with top acts, military displays, live music, and static displays from 9 am until 4 pm. Admission and parking is free.
