The audience will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see Aaron Tippin perform such songs as “Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagles Fly” and “You’ve Got to Stand for Something” in front of one of America’s historic and heroic warbirds. The concert is coordinated by the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) and provides the audience with an exclusive, patriotic performance to celebrate America’s freedom through song and the roaring radial engines of some of the world’s most famous warbirds. The B-25 “Devil Dog” will appear at the air show with Aaron Tippin.
Not only is Aaron Tippin a platinum recording artist with more than 30 charted singles, but he is also a highly experienced airman. He became a commercial multi-engine instrument-rated pilot by the age of 18, and he owns a 1941 Stearman, a 1946 J3 Cub, 1959 Helio Curior and 1943 SNJ-4 nicknamed “Greek Freek”.
“As a son of a pilot, a pilot myself and a patriot, the mission is important to me,” said Tippin. “Acknowledging the history of this great nation and the service men and women who make our freedoms possible is stellar and I’m happy to champion the organization’s efforts.”
The B-25 “Devil Dog” is a bomber aircraft that was used by the U.S. Marine Corps in WWII. Originally designed for the U.S. Army Air Corp, the B-25 “Devil Dog” was used by the Marine Corps for “night heckling”, anti-shipping missions and close air support of beachheads and landings. The “Devil Dog” represents a PBJ-1J (patrol bomber) of the VMB 612 squadron. The bomber will be available for guided tours during the air show.
