There will be hundreds of unique planes and opportunities to learn about aviation history at Wings over Houston.



"I've been flying for 53 years and doing aerobatics for about 39," Rihn-Harvey said.

She started aerobatics for safety reasons. As a commercial pilot, she wanted to make sure she could always recover if something went wrong in the cockpit.

Now, she's one of the top-ranked aerobatic pilots in the world.

"People stop in their tracks and they look because it's a woman's voice over the radio," Rihn-Harvey laughed. "They're all going, 'Oh my gosh, there's a woman up there!'"
