We're looking forward to the C-47s from the D-Day Squadron coming to SUN 'n FUN Aerospace Expo 2020, and with opening day just 47 days away, it seemed like the perfect day to talk about it. Did you know that there were actually several variants of this design, including the C-53 Skytrooper? Do you know the differences between a C-53 and a C-47?
At #SNF20 we'll commemorate the 75th Anniversary of one of the most exciting aerobatic aircraft ever made – the iconic Pitts Special! SUN 'n FUN is celebrating the diamond anniversary of this beautiful aircraft by inviting Pitts owners to showcase their planes, and offering FREE admission to the show when you fly in your Pitts!
The first test flight of the Pitts S-1 was made by Curtis Pitts himself in 1945, after which the aircraft type quickly gained acclaim from competition and recreational pilots alike. The Pitts Special is widely regarded as one of the most agile and maneuverable aerobatic aircraft in the world, and has been manufactured in numerous configurations during its storied history.
We'll showcase Pitts aircraft in a specially designated parking area in our NEW Aerobatic HQ in the center of our airside attractions, with a full range of forums and seminars for members and aerobatic enthusiasts onsite throughout the week.
Those who bring their Pitts will receive free weekly admission for up to two people. On arrival at the Fly-in, Pitts owners need only place a sign in their dashboards with large letters ACRO in order to be directed to the Aerobatic HQ parking area. Wristbands will be issued by SUN ‘n FUN volunteers upon arrival and registration.
