If you are into aviation, this is your mecca. Great airshows and then racing of biplanes, sport class, jets, and war birds including P-51's. We have been going for 20 plus years and often meet the same people there!

If you like air shows, this is great ....Air Races ! vendors, static displays, this year they had drone racing, too. There is nothing like airplanes racing around a course in the desert! You've got to experience it!

Great racing in vintage planes, A10 Warthog demonstration, Texas Legends with a B25 and numerous WWII Aircraft and to top it all off, A B2 Flyover. All in all a perfect day at the Races.
