Hopefully by then the coronavirus concerns won't be as severe as it is now.

Hmm.. Seems Air Combat Command (ACC) is off once again. Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson is as of the moment, schedule for Saturday July 11th and Sunday July 12th. No reports or Updates of the local news area of Anchorage or JBER. They are still continuing to plan for 2020, and to add that CNN reported that: "Alaska will allow everything to reopen on Friday May 23rd." Governor Mike Dunleavy says "All business, churches, barber shops, restaurants, and some events can occur with maximum capacity" (100% basically). If time is right they will continue with planning. Although, what would be dislike to other shows that should have drive-in airshows considered by the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS), this show could be taking off normal, unlike some of the early fall shows in August.

I've been told that the airshow will likely go ahead, but it is very likely that it will only be open to people who already have base access. I'll be shocked if they welcome tens of thousands of people to crowd together with military personnel so soon, but I guess we'll see

It looks like the organizers with the show at JB Elmendorf-Richardson are putting the show back on for July 10th only.
