ADDISON (CBSDFW.COM) - There is a very special event happening this weekend in North Texas for anyone who loves vintage war aircraft and vehicles. Warbirds Over Addison is opening to the public at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, one of the best places in the country to see these types of historic pieces.

Warbirds Over Addison is unique because it features actual working vehicles. These are not planes sitting still on a runway or in a hangar. The event coordinators and museum officials fly the planes over North Texas for the crowd to witness. “You can go to museums and see artifacts and airplanes there that are static,” explained Doug Jeanes with Cavanaugh Flight Museum. “We actually fly them, so it’s kind of the difference between going to a taxidermy shop or going to a zoo.”

Not only that, but attendees will actually have an opportunity to ride in some of the more than 20 airplanes that will be taking off this weekend. “See a living plane,” Jeanes said. “See them, smell them, hear them — totally different world.”

This will be the 16th year for Warbirds Over Addison. The event takes place on both Saturday and Sunday. Click here to visit the event’s official site for more details, including times and ticket prices.
