To add to the already stacked military representation for this year's Intel Oregon International Air Show Presented by Standard TV & Appliance, a U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight will pay homage to those who have served or are currently serving in the United States Air Force.
Catch the amazing tribute combining past and present military fighter aircraft! This flight will include an F-16 Fighting Falcon, a Korean-era F-86 Sabre, and two WWII-era P-51 Mustangs. This is a demonstration not to be missed!
The U.S. Navy Blue Angels, one of the world's most sought-after air show teams, will roar back to Oregon for the 2015 Intel Oregon International Air Show Presented by Standard TV & Appliance.
One airplane in the Blue Angels fleet gets its own billing, and it isn't one of the supersonic Hornet jets. It's "Fat Albert", a U.S. Marine Corps C-130 Hercules airlifter. Fat Albert is the team's support plane, but it flies its own solo performance at air shows, demonstrating the surprising nimbleness of the four-turboprop transport.
The U.S. Air Force will perform a demonstration of its workhorse multi-role fighter aircraft at this year's Intel Oregon International Air Show. The highly maneuverable F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter aircraft that has proven itself in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack. While sleek in size, the F-16 is no light-weight in strength. Fully loaded with fuel, the Fighting Falcon can withstand 9 G's (9 times the force of gravity), which exceeds the capability of other current fighter aircraft.
