“This will be the biggest air show we have ever had in Owensboro, and we are excited to showcase an amazing lineup of performers and aircraft to everyone this year. In addition to the US Navy Blue Angels headlining the show again this year, we have Fat Albert with their team scheduled to fly this year and the US Air Force Viper Demo team joining them to showcase the amazing F-16 Fighting Falcon. We have an incredible line-up of civilian aerobatics, warbirds, military aircraft, and an unbelievable helicopter demo from Chuck Aaron who is a legend in aviation for flying aerobatics in a helicopter. This show will be incredible!” said Public Events Director, Tim Ross.
The airshow lineup will feature the University of Southern Utah – Chuck Aaron academy helicopter aerobatics demo, an L-39 jet, the Special Operations Command Parachute Demo Team, a WWI era Curtiss Jenny bi-plane, the Lucas Oil Air Shows Michael Wiskus, Kevin Colemen, and Redline Air Shows, as well as T-6, T-38, and C-17 military aircrafts scheduled to participate. Also returning to the air show will be a B-25 Mitchell Bomber made famous as the aircraft flown by the Doolittle Raiders in WWII. The B-25 will be flying during air show weekend in addition to offering paid rides throughout the weekend. The Army Aviation Heritage Sky Soldiers will be bringing their AH-1 Cobra and UH-1 Huey helicopters back to the show this year as well. The Sky Soldiers have been part of the annual air show weekend several times previously with hundreds of people throughout the weekend taking advantage of the unique opportunity to ride on one of these iconic military helicopters.
“I am excited about the lineup each year. This year is by far the most unique one to date with a great combination of the most famous military jet team in the world, an Air Force fighter jet demo, and incredible aerobatics including a helicopter demonstration that will blow your mind. It will be a great show for the aviation enthusiast as well as casual fans to see a great display of different types of aircraft,” said Tim Ross.
Owensboro Air Show activities will occur on Friday, August 13 at the Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport and on Saturday and Sunday, August 14 & 15 in downtown Owensboro.
