War Bird Exhibit
Do you have a Warbird that you would like to bring to the Telluride Festival of Cars & Colors? CLICK HERE FOR ONLINE WARBIRD REGISTRATION
The Cars & Colors airport venue will be host to some great vintage War Birds on display. These aircraft are historic icons and enduring symbols of American Freedom. Among the great aircraft we have hosted in the last 3 years are the North American SNJ5, a T-28, C 45, Cub J3 and a P-51 Mustang.
Special guest Warbird for 2018: The TBM Avenger. This Navy aircraft helped turn the tide of WWII in the Pacific. The Avenger was capable of carrying a 2000 lb bomb, had unique folding wings, was launched most often from the deck of a Naval Aircraft Carrier and was the largest single engine bomber aircraft in the war. This particular aircraft is the first aircraft to be place on the Colorado National Register of Historic Properties, was the lead aircraft in the formation that flew over Queen Elizabeth’s coronation and appeared in Steven Spielberg’s movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”. The Commemorative Air Force Rocky Mountain Wing is proud to present this living piece of history and will be giving rides, for a fee, throughout the day on Saturday.
