The City of Owensboro is excited to announce the performer lineup for the 2024 Owensboro Air Show on September 13-15, 2024. 

“This will be one of the biggest air shows 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 U.S. Navy Blue Angels headlining the show again, we have Fat Albert with their team scheduled to fly this year.  Joining the lineup will be the USAF Lighting II Demo Team to showcase the fifth-generation stealth F-35A.  We have an incredible line-up of civilian aerobatics, warbirds, and military aircraft.  This show will be incredible!” said Public Events Director, Tim Ross.


The Owensboro Air Show lineup will feature Rob Holland, a 12-time national aerobatic champion; the Wings of Blue Parachute Demo Team; Redline Airshows; the Northern Stars Aeroteam, a 3-ship Pitts Demo Team; and the KY Air National Guard with their C-130J Super Hercules.  Also participating in the Air Show will be the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) – Arizona with their iconic B-17 Flying Fortress and their B-25 Mitchell Bomber made famous as the aircraft flown by the Doolittle Raiders in WWII.  The fan-favorite Army Aviation Heritage Sky Soldiers will bring their AH-1 Cobra and UH-1 Huey helicopters back to the show. The CAF – Arizona team and the Sky Soldiers will offer paid rides in their historic aircraft throughout Air Show weekend, which hundreds of people have taken the opportunity to do over the years.


“I am excited about the lineup each year.  This year is one of the most diverse lineups to date with a great combination of the most famous military jet team in the world, the newest fifth-gen fighter jet demo, and incredible aerobatics from multiple performers 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, September 13 at the Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport, and on Saturday and Sunday, September 14 & 15 in downtown Owensboro.
