The 2021 Arctic Lightning Airshow roars back into Eielson AFB near Fairbanks, Alaska on 31 July - 1 August as the US Navy Blue Angels come to Alaska along with the USAF F-35 Demonstration Team. With their new Super Hornets and Super Hercules, the Blue Angels make their farthest deployment from the continental United States in 2021 for the great airshow fans of Alaska. Look for more performers to be added later this Spring.

Looks like Eielson AFB is set to get the A-10 Demo Team according to the ICAS calendar.

Sounds awesome, if it wasn't in conflict with Oshkosh I'd already have airline tickets booked! Hopefully a future year

You can disregard the A-10 Demo as it is no longer showing on the ICAS calendar.

Yeah that'd be a sweet summer trip, if it didn't conflict with Osh.
