The world-famous Texas Flying Legends Museum will perform an airshow in Rockland on Friday, August 17, at 11:30 a.m. as part of the 2012 Penobscot Bay Rendezvous. The public will have a perfect view of the half-hour airshow from the Rockland Breakwater.
Based out of Ellington Field in Houston, Texas, the Texas Flying Legends Museum flies their growing collection of aircraft from Texas to Minot, North Dakota each spring, to Wiscasset, Maine, each summer, and back to Texas in the fall. The group acquires the best flying WWII aircraft available today and campaign these Flying Legends with a sense of inspiration for those who are not aware or involved in the great history of the United States, and most importantly, honor the many that are.
The museum’s planes participating in the airshow are: B-25 – Betty’s Dream, P-40K – Aleutian Tiger, P-51D – Dakota Kid II, FG-1D Corsair – Whistling Death, and A6-M2 Japanese Zero – Last Samurai. Information on the Texas Flying Legends Museum can be found by clicking here.
After the airshow, the public should stick around to watch some great sailboat racing, as the start of the first day of racing in the Penobscot Bay Rendezvous will get underway immediately following the aerial display.
