In the century since the first warbirds took to the air, our brave military pilots have had a common mission. To preserve our freedom at all costs on the vast and daunting battlefield of the sky. This is the Lewis Air Legends mission: to preserve their memory while honoring their bravery and sacrifice. To bring the thrill of their incredible flying machines – and those they fought against – to as many people as possible in a truly international display of historic airpower. Especially to young people. Our pioneer aviators and heroes inspired Rod Lewis in his boyhood passion for flight, patriotism and love of American history. So it is for future generations that Lewis Air Legends will be a living, flying tribute to those who dreamed, built, supported and flew our brilliant birds of war.
