CAF Airpower History Tour at Oakland County Intl Airport (Detroit) - July 3-7 2019

Adding a thread for this Commemorative Air Force tour stop as it's close to home for me. The CAF is bringing the B-29 Superfortress "Fifi", C-45 Expeditor, T-6 Texan, and PT-13 Stearman to the Oakland County International Airport (near Detroit, Michigan) on July 3-7. They're advertising ground tours and of course you can book rides on the aircraft. There are some other warbirds based on the field so I imagine they might get pulled out as well.

This is the same time as the Battle Creek airshow which is about 3 hours away, so not sure I'll make it personally.

This event is separate from the airport open house, which is scheduled for August 11th!

You can find other tour stops listed on the airshow calendar page:
