Hey all! I cant speak for other organizers, but there is not an airshow in Racine in 2021. We are definitely hopeful we can make this happen in the future. With COVID and the uncertainty that it brings, along with the city being on shutdown through June, it was too impossible to make a show happen in 2021.

The F22 and A10 flight will be for the parade in 2021 as a heritage flight.

Thanks for the clarification, I will make sure the schedule is clear on this. Hopefully a building block to more in the future!

Hello all! Not that I'm expecting people to travel in for a flyover, but if you're in the area--- here are some details...

The flyover is on July 5th at 9:30AM

It will occur from North to South. I'll try and attach a map.

The parade will be televised live on MY24 (Milwaukee channel)

Finally, if you want a photo opportunity, the flyover will be

2x F-22
2x A-10

Both will fly together in formation.

1 flyover with 2-f22s and 2-a10s in formation. Last time the f22 flew around the city prior to the heritage flight--- not sure if that will happen this time.

So the demo team pilots, along with their wingmen.

Sounds cool. I was really looking forward to the full-fledged airshow last year until COVID wiped it out. Had a great lineup planned. Hopefully, that's in the cards for the near future again.
