Fargo AirSho takes flight this weekend

11 Aug

Me circa 1995 - a ride on a stunt plane at the Fargo AirSho

In 1995, I was an intern reporter for The Forum and had the unique opportunity to fly in a two-person, bi-wing, aerobatic plane – one of the Pitts S-2B aircraft in the Sierra Aces Aerobatic Team performing that year.  The ride was thrilling – to say the least.

The Sierra Aces won’t be performing in Fargo this year, but the renowned US Navy Blue Angels will be, along with War Birds, Blackhawks and other stunt pilots and teams.  More than 15,000 spectators are expected each day of the show – taking place Saturday and Sunday, August 13-14, at the Hector International Airport in north Fargo.

The Fargo AirSho has an incredible schedule and good forecast ahead of it.  Visitors will find interesting aviation exhibits and tours and should also consider stopping by the Fargo Air Museum.

The FM RedHawks also have a home stand this weekend against Minnesota rivals the St. Paul Saints.  Tickets are still available.  For more great options in Fargo-Moorhead, stop by the Convention and Visitors Bureau – featuring the original woodchipper from the movie Fargo.
