FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The Fort Worth Alliance Air Show drew a crowd of 45,000 people this weekend. Attendees enjoyed an all-star lineup headlined by the Black Diamond Jet Team (shown above), civilian aerobatic stars, classic military aircraft and a special appearance by the Spirit of Alliance T-38 Talon.

Show officials reported strong attendance at the annual two-day event, despite cooler than normal temperatures each morning. Held at the Fort Worth Alliance Airport, the show is the centerpiece of the 18,000-acre AllianceTexas development housing 350 companies, 35,000 employees and more than 7,400 single-family homes.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with this year’s show,” said Tom Harris, President of Alliance Air Services. “Spectators, performers, sponsors, community leaders, the airport, and volunteers all contributed to make this show a tremendous success. Our hats are off to the people of Fort Worth for pulling off this great event.”

Proceeds from the show will benefit local charities and non-profit organizations including the DFO USO. Since 2006, the show has provided more than $358,000 in donations to community non-profit organizations.

“This weekend’s show was a great way for our community to salute our military,” said Harris. “We want to thank our loyal Air Show fans for coming out and showing their colors.”

Plans for next year’s air show are already in the works and performers and ticket information will be announced later this year.
