U-S Air Force To Bring Heritage Flight to Air Show

Duluth, MN (KDAL) - There’s a familiar addition to this year’s Duluth Airshow.  Event promoter Ryan Kern along with 8th District Congressman Rick Nolan announced this afternoon that the Air Force has tabbed Duluth for a special ‘Heritage Flight’ during the show August 23rd and 24th.  In addition to a P-47 Thunderbolt making a first-ever appearance at the air show, the Air Force is bringing a P-38 Lightning to the event.  If that aircraft sounds familiar, it should.  One of the major arteries connecting Duluth and Superior is named after the famous pilot who flew one of these planes during World War Two.  That would be Richard Bong of Poplar, whose name graces a museum in Superior as well as Highway Two between Superior and Duluth—otherwise known as the Richard I. Bong Bridge.
