12/3/2010 - PITTSBURGH IAP ARS -- It's official. The 2011 Wings Over Pittsburgh air show is scheduled for September 10 & 11, 2011. Hosting record crowds, coupled with perfect weather were among the top reasons credited for the events tremendous success this past year. Additionally, numerous attendees of the event also expressed their gratitude to 911th Airlift Wing members for hosting such a patriotic event on a date that holds a significant place in American history. As with this past year's show, planners of the 2011 air show will incorporate a similar patriotic theme since the weekend event will be held on the ten-year anniversary of 9/11.
"I had the opportunity to attend this past year's air show and it was inspiring to see the tremendous community support the event received. After seeing that support first-hand I wanted the community to know that we are committed to the event and appreciate their continued support," said Col. Jeffrey T. Pennington, 911th Airlift Wing commander.
Headline performers will not be announced until after the International Council of Air Shows convention, which will be held in early December this year in Las Vegas, Nevada.
