Thank you. I needed to hear those Jets Roar!
Where do I go to buy tickets to the Columbus shoe?
Shows at military bases typically don’t require tickets for general admission. You can find more show info at https://wocairshow.com/
Since the military sites most likely do not require tickets, can you send me the link for the Great Falls Montana show? I can not find the link. Thank you.
Google says that this is their website – http://greatfallsairshow.com/
Enjoy the show!
Are tickets required? Time for the show on Saturday, April 2, 2022?
You can find more info on that show here – https://www.shaw.af.mil/2022-Shaw-Air-Space-Expo/
Looking for frequencies for the Columbus, Mississippi 2022 Air Show.
Living on AFB most of my life. Grew up seeing the airshow… now due to covid its hard to keep track… living in Western Massachusetts. I have a privilege of having Westover and Barnes close by.
I wanna cry. I don’t see KAFB in Albuquerque. maybe in 23. (long, very long, sad sigh). Stay safe!

Was very disappointed that thunderbirds did not plan a show here in Massachusetts. Even after twenty years in USAF I still get chills at shows.
I know how team schedulers work and requests need to be in years in advance. I was at Nelli’s AFB years ago and watched team practice all the time until I got bored.
Now, I check their schedule long before they show up to see if they have a show close by. Covid quashed any dreams of that happening.
Will see if they show up at Pease in ’23 or cancel again.
