Aaron Tippin, a avid pilot, got a big surprise when he was asked to perform in his first airshow in Granite Falls, Minn. Tippin and his band performed a concert later that evening.

Aaron Tippin got to fly a few passes in his first air show.

Tippin was in Granite Falls, Minn., (June 16) to perform a concert at the Ray Fagen Memorial Air Show at Lenzen-Roe Memorial Field (KGBD).  

Tippin was surprised when he was asked to participate in the one-day Air Show. “What a day. Wow! I got to fly in an air show,” Tippin said. “It was only a couple of low passes but it sure was cool for me.”

The WWII showcase featured warbird demonstrations, dozens of static displays including a P-38, P-40s, P-51’s, trainers, ground assault re-enactors, a Sherman tank, half track and Liberty Jump Team.

The opening of the Fagen Fighters WWII Museum was featured with Tippin and his band’s performance.

Proceeds will benefit the Minnesotans' Military Appreciation Fund.

Tippin was in Greer in May to perform at the Family Fest.
