Ray Fagen Memorial Airshow

These three North American T-6Texans were among the wide variety of aircraft to fly over an adoring crowd at the Ray Fagen Memorial Airshow June 16 in Granite Falls. Food, music, and fireworks were part of the annual celebration paying tribute to the Greatest Generation.

If you are looking for a role model to pick up a few pointers on how to be respectful to your heritage, drive or fly to Granite Falls, Minnesota for the next Ray Fagen Memorial Airshow. If you missed June's show this year, you missed a lot.

From the opening ceremonies to the last of the evening's fireworks, the Fagen Family is all about paying homage to the Greatest Generation. This year's annual event was filled with thrilling aircraft displaying unique abilities in the air for an enthusiastic crowd, topped off with great music, grilled food, and fantastic fireworks.

The good news is, you need not wait until next year to visit the Fagen Fighters WWII Museum to see the collection of vintage aircraft and World War II memorabilia. http://www.fagenfighterswwIImuseum.org
