MIDLAND -- Despite a growing turmoil between local politicians and the Commemorative Air Force, the CAF will move forward with their Airsho set for October 11.

On Tuesday the Midland City Council approved a resolution that will allow the CAF to host the Airsho on Midland International Airport property.

CAF CEO Stephan Brown says that was the plan all along, but adds he's happy to put it in writing.

"We're going to continue to operate the museum, we're going to continue to operate the annual air show.  We're just going to continue to put those things down in writing so that the city and the citizens feel good about it.  I'm happy to do that, but I'm happy to put it together in writing and I think that we made a lot of progress today," Brown said.

Recently the CAF has faced opposition from Texas state representative Tom Craddick who is criticizing the CAF for considering a move from their permanent home in Midland in 2017.
