Air Shows & War Planes in Naples 46/365
Since the winter season is when the population is greatest and the weather is favorable it’s when the best festivals and event occur and that includes air shows. Air shows in Florida are held from November through April in various locations across the state.
Charlotte County Air show is in November (2019). You can track future air show events in Charlotte County on their official site https://www.floridaairshow.com/.
In the Naples and Fort Myers area traveling and touring war planes come to town from time to time. It’s a big deal and there are usually announcements on local media. The planes have come to Naples Municipal Airport and Page Field in Fort Myers. You can often purchase tickets to take a ride in the craft of your choice, weather conditions permitting.
The Naples events are nice because the airport is small and it is a casual atmosphere and everyone is so excited to see the planes up close and personal. You can tour them on the inside without taking a flight, most of the time.

If you know of a veteran who may have flown be sure to take them. It’s such a treat to see these beautiful planes for veterans.
