The 2021 Wings over South Texas @ Buc Days along the Corpus Christi Bayfront will be hosting the US Navy F-35C Lightning II Demonstration Team from VFA-125 during the airshow on 1-2 May 2021. We are still awaiting information from the Legacy Flight Program if there will be a warbird also participating. We're excited to be on their 2021 Airshow Demo Schedule!

An update from Schultz Airshows as of 3/2/2021 regarding this event:

Considering budgetary constraints inflicted as part of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Buc Days Commission and David Schultz Airshows have made the decision to scale back the civilian and warbird performances for the 2021 Wings over South Texas Airshow as part of the Buc Days events on 1-2 May 2021.

Special emphasis will be placed on making this a predominantly military themed event with performances by the USN Blue Angels, USN Leap Frogs, USAF F-16 Viper Demo Team, US Navy F-35C Lightning II Demo Team, USAF Heritage Flight, USN Legacy Flight, Coast Guard Sector Corpus Christi, aircraft from NAS Kingsville and NAS Corpus Christi, aircraft from Laughlin AFB, and several other military and government aircraft. We anticipate the Customs Border Protection EP-3E Orion also providing a demonstration as part of the event.

Should sponsorships improve in this current environment, additional performers, including warbirds and civilian aerobatics, will be considered closer to the show dates.

The Wings over South Texas Airshow will still be an exceptional event along the Corpus Christi Waterfront that will celebrate both the 75th Anniversary of the USN Blue Angels and the 80th Anniversary of Naval Air Station Corpus Christi.

The website currently says 1-3pm. Will this be an all day event with everything listed or are things still changing?
