Don’t miss your chance to get up close and personal to a wide range of aircraft. All aircraft are subject to change, but we are planning to have Army Blackhawk helicopters, USCG HC-144 Ocean Sentry, B-25 Mitchell Bomber, USAF T-6 trainers, civilian aircraft, and jets from each of the military teams on static display. The Blue Angels team is currently scheduled for a meet & greet opportunity near their static display jet from 5:30pm – 6:00pm. Evening aerial performances are scheduled to begin just after 6:30pm. As the sun begins to set, a few more performers will take to the sky with an evening spectacle of nighttime air show performances just prior to the fireworks.

Once the last performer lands, everyone will enjoy a fireworks spectacular presented by Independence Bank.
