FAQs (Go to top of page)

Will there be an air show this year? What time does it start and end?

Yes, the air show is scheduled for Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. Gates open at 9 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. each day.

Why have an air show?

The two-day show will allow us to open the gates to the public in a way that will provide the same opportunities to educate and enhance public awareness of military capabilities, honor our heritage, and promote positive community and international relations while showcasing our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines under the constraints of the current fiscal environment.

How does the air show fit in the budget?

Department of Defense leaders take a close look at balancing cutbacks with maintaining good community relations. Air shows give an opportunity for the public to get an active view of what their military services capabilities are while generating interest in the military and its role in national security.
