Warbird Showcase 2022 tour schedule announced

Georgetown aviation event set Oct. 1
March 6, 2022

The Capital Wing of the Commemorative Air Force, based in Culpeper, Va., in conjunction with the Delaware Aviation Museum Foundation, announced its Warbird Showcase 2022 Tour Schedule.

World War II aircraft will be flying at 12 cities in six states as a tribute to the thousands of men and women who built, serviced and flew them. The public will have the opportunity to purchase warbird rides in all the aircraft.

Restored to almost pristine condition, the warbirds on tour will include a 1945 TBM Avenger torpedo bomber, a 1945 North American B-25 twin-engine twin-tailed bomber named Panchito, a 1943 Stinson L-5 Sentinel, and a 1942 Boeing PT-17 Stearman open-cockpit biplane.

Warbird rides in any of these aircraft allow the public to sit in the exact same seats as did members of another generation 80 years ago. Many riders are overcome with emotion if their grandfathers or fathers flew in these same types of warbirds.

Warbird rides on the B-25 will be available locally Saturday, Oct. 1, in Georgetown. For additional tour dates, go to

Warbird rides are priced to fit every budget, ranging from $105 to $1,300 and everything in between. The scheduled warbirds will appear at each event subject to pilot and aircraft availability, maintenance, weather and sufficient advance flight sales.

The Capital Wing and Delaware Aviation Museum Foundation are both nonprofit organizations and are staffed entirely by volunteers.
