Wings Over Halls

Wings Over Halls is an air show that recounts those years during WWII. Held on a former B-17 training base 55 miles north of Memphis, this show allows you to visit the warbirds on the ramp, buy rides in some instances, see pyrotechnics that simulate bombing, and see these magnificent aircraft perform feats never imagined. Thirty aircraft perform during the show annually. A museum is also located on the site.
