Heavy Bombers Weekend At Madison

MADISON, WIS. – The “Heavy Bombers Weekend” was once again held at Wisconsin Aviation, Inc., Dane County Regional Airport in Madison, Wis., July 25-27, 2014. The event was produced by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and Commemorative Air Force (CAF).

The Heavy Bombers Weekend prides itself in allowing visitors to see, touch, feel, hear, smell, and climb through a collection of aircraft to help educate younger generations of the sacrifices made to defend our basic freedom in the United States of America. The event is family friendly for all ages. A 1940s Hangar Dance was held in the Wisconsin Aviation hangar. A Badger Honor Flight to the war memorials in Washington, D.C., also occurred that weekend.

Featured aircraft included the CAF B-25 Mitchell Bomber, “Miss Mitchell,” and EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast.” Other aircraft included the P-51 “Gunfighter,” a T-6 Texan, Canadian Harvard MK IV, Vultee BT-13, Ryan PT-22, and L-5 Sentinel.

Additional ground tour aircraft included an Air National Guard F-16 Falcon, a University of Wisconsin medflight helicopter, and many experimental aircraft.

Madison, Wisconsin is a perfect stop for the EAA and CAF aircraft for their national tours on their way to EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., the following week.
