Each year, The Dyersburg Army Air Base Memorial Associaion, Inc. brings to the Town of Halls, the county of Lauderdale, the state of Tennessee, and The United States of America (Sol 3 of the Milky Way?) a spectacular display of aviation.

While most of the show is dedicated to showcasing World War 2 aircraft, it is also a celebration of aviation in general. This two day event includes many stunts including paratrooping/parachuting, bomb runs, displays of fully restored WW2 aircraft, celebrities of WW2, fun for the whole family and more.


B-17 Fuddy Duddy

The Big Plane
The B-17 was at first lightly armed. However, following Pearl Harbor, it went into combat with armor plate and all-around machine-gun emplacements. Fortresses were defended by as many as 13 heavy machine guns. The underside was protected by a ball turret and 2 waist gunners. A tail gunner was added to the B-17E and all subsequent models.
