Greatest Generation Meets Fifth-Generation.
The Cleveland National Air Show is one of the most legendary aircraft displays our country has known. The show evolved from the Cleveland National Air Races in the 1920s, which featured aviation celebrities such as Amelia Earhart. Displays of aircraft were not commonplace before Cleveland’s annual air show but since then they have become an American tradition.
“In 1920, the idea of an Air Show first came to America from Europe when Joseph Pulitzer, publisher of the New York World, put up the money for a race on Long Island’s Mitchell Field. Pulitzer’s goal was to reawaken interest in aviation, which was suffering from post-WWI apathy.”
The Cleveland National Air Show is about embracing traditions as well as embracing the evolution aircraft. A heritage flight was put together made up of a P-51 Mustang, an F-22 Raptor and an F-35 Lightning. Tradition and evolution unite in the skies to showcase a love for aviation in all its forms. We are fortunate enough to have this footage from AirshowStuffVideos who delivers the clearest high-definition aviation film around.
