The Historic National Air Tour is coming back to Winston-Salem for the first time since 1929. We urge you to come out and see this once-in-a-lifetime event. It's fun, it's free and it's fantastic!
The first vintage aircraft will begin arriving at Smith Reynolds Airport in mid afternoon (see times above) and will be on display until departing the following day. Arrivals may extend over a period of approximately two and a half hours beginning with the estimated time shown.
Safety if first and foremost, please observe any instructions given by officials and remain well clear of all operating aircraft. The pilots will be available to meet and talk with the public after their aircraft have been parked and fueled.
We look forward to seeing you at the airport!
Thank you Winston-Salem!

• The Tour landed at Miller Municipal Airport and arrived from Richmond in time for lunch at the Hotel Robert E. Lee. It departed the same day at about 3 p.m. for Greenville.
• Three airplanes did not make the trip from Richmond. The huge Curtis Condor suffered motor trouble and was forced to return to Richmond shortly after departure. Pilot May Hazlip, flying an American Eagle, was still expected by the time the rest of the Tour left Winston-Salem. Pilot Earl Rowland suffered appendicitis and was also forced to return to Richmond.
