(BRANSON, MISSOURI – March 22, 2022) – The 2nd Annual Wings Over The Ozarks Air Show & Music Festival sponsored by Titanic Museum Attraction and hosted by Branson Airport will take flight this Memorial Day Weekend.  Join the Boys & Girls Club of the Ozarks for this FREE community event to benefit lives of area youth. (donations will be accepted)

Five hair-raising aerobatic shows will take the runway at Branson Airport, with festival goers being able to watch directly from the airfield. Premier 80’s Tribute Band, Members Only, will perform favorite 80’s tunes, with classic rock from Highway 13 and music from all genres with Pete & Dave other local artists lend their talent to the fundraiser.

Back by popular demand is a mini-jet air show featuring Tom Larkin in his SubSonex Mini Jet, one of the smallest jet powered aircraft in the world.  Completing the airshows will be pilots, Brian Correll in a highly modified Pitts S2S capable of turning your stomach upside down, even as you watch from the ground… and Kyle Franklin of Franklin’s Flying Circus, who will be performing a special act, so be alert you won’t want to miss the shenanigans!

As in the past, there will be patriotic celebrations and special tributes to members of our armed services, as well as a swearing in ceremony, expected to see over 50 new recruits join the military. Various Army experiences will be on hand such as, Robotics used in bomb diffusing, a STEM activity trailer and static aircraft and vehicles.

“Titanic Museum is always honored to support the biggest asset in our community – The Boys & Girls Club of the Ozarks. Everyday these young people come into the Club with a bag of luck, and it’s up to each of us in the community to fill that young person’s bag with experiences for their future. When they look up in the sky and see the fliers fly – if they want, they can do that someday,” Titanic Museum President and Co-owner Mary Kellogg said.

“The Wings Over the Ozarks event is an opportunity for our businesses and community to come together to support children, our biggest asset in our community,” Boys & Girls Club of the Ozarks CEO Stoney Hays said.
