The Reno Air Racing Association has set the dates for the 2015 National Championship Air Races for Sept. 16-20 at the Reno Stead Airport. They’ve also announced the performers for this year’s races: Breitling Jet Team, the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the Commemorative Air Force’s Tora, Tora, Tora Airshow.
The Tora, Tora, Tora Airshow represents the words spoken Dec. 7, 1941 as the Air Force announced its successful surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. The team has been reenacting the day for the last 35 years as a memorial to all of the military personnel on both sides of the war who lost their lives.
The Swiss Breitling Jet Team will be flying L-39C Albatross aircraft, showing off a variety of maneuvers and passes, concluding with a pyrotechnic finale. The F-16 Falcon will also be performing several maneuvers, as well as being available for tours.
