FORT WORTH ALLIANCE AIR SHOW 2016

Ft. Worth Alliance Air Show 2016

Well as air shows go this has to rate up there near the top of the list in this part of the country.  Expecting in the neighborhood of 120,000 folks in the two days it was huge. A family friendly event with all sorts of planes,  helicopters, food, drinks and all sorts of rides for the little guys. Planes parked on the tarmac for up close viewing.

Plane Rides

There were plane rides starting at about $475 with the proceeds going to the up keep of some of these old birds that we here.  What a great show.  A privilege and honor to witness all of this up close and personal.  These pilots and aircraft are amazing to watch.  Being a two day event it seems that most came out on Saturday as it was extremely packed so if your considering going next year and like a little more elbow room and access to the Pilots the crowd is a lot thinner on Sundays.

Airshow proposal

To close the show show there was a flying banner proposal “Taryn will you marry me? ♥ Quentin”. She was a little surprised and it took only a second for her to say yes.  He placed a large diamond on her finger and they hug and kissed.  What a great ending to an awesome ending.
