Q. Are Saturday and Sunday the same show?
A. There will be minor differences, but the majority of the show will be similar.
Q. Who is performing when? Will there be a schedule?
A. We will not release a schedule. Here's an example of why:Your favorite performer is slotted for 2 p.m. You plan to get to the air show at 1 p.m. Alas, two acts scheduled to perform prior have mechanical issues and now they've been bumped up and your favorite performer has been bumped back... to noon. You arrive at 1 p.m., having missed them.We definitely don't want this to happen to you, and with so many moving parts, our schedule must allow for a vast amount of flexibility; to release a schedule would surely work against your plans.
Q. What kind of ID do I need to bring?
A. None, this is an open house event. However, safety and security are our top priority, so we reserve the right to change this at any time; follow our page for the latest updates. Understand that ALL hand-carried items are subject to search, for your protection.
Q. Will there be handicapped parking?
A. Yes. Additionally, there will be shuttles from the parking area to the show area.
Q. What does the ground show entail?
A. More static displays of smaller and older aircraft, cars, vendors, and more!
Spectators may enter through the North/Knob Noster/Arnold Gate.
