In addition to the U.S. Air Force F-16 Viper Demonstration Team & U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight, we are anticipating a wide variety of additional U.S. military aircraft to support and will have more to announce in the coming weeks. Latest confirmations include...
  • A HC-130J Combat King II from Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona and the 79th Rescue Squadron, 355th Wing, which will serve as one of the jump platforms for the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Black Daggers Parachute Team.
  • A C-17 Globemaster III from March ARB, California and the 452nd Air Mobility Wing for static display.
  • A Vietnam Search & Rescue (SAR) Demonstration featuring the American Flight Museum's AC-47 Spooky gunship and other aircraft from the era (to be determined).
  • A Reno Air Race Exhibition featuring a variety of unlimited-style and standard class warbird race aircraft, featuring the Goodyear F2G Super Corsair.
The event will also feature a night air show Saturday evening over the 2021 Country Stampede music festival to celebrate their 25th Anniversary.

This show is getting a ton of buzz lately because of the amazing military flybys and static displays, plus the warbird lineup. If it wasn't so far away I'd certainly love to attend myself!
