Due to maintainence issues Ike's Bird will not be able to fly on July 4th. The aircraft will resume giving flights to veterans as soon as possible.
CAF Ike's Bird will be giving Victory Flights for the Veterans during the United We Fly-4th of July event. The fly over will take place over the areas of Waxahachie, Midlothian and Mansfield. The primary mission of the CAF’s “Ike’s Bird” is to fly veterans for free in an historic plane. These flights are called “Victory Flights for Veterans”. Victory Flights are done to honor the veterans service to the nation and our freedoms. To fulfill this worthy mission, we must find and recruit Victory Flight Sponsors to help.
