It'll be SHOCKWAVE. You can also add Rob Holland to the list. We have a few other confirmations but will spread everything out :).

Phillips 66 Aerostars will be performing.
Phil Dacy will be our announcer again.

Still working on a few more acts and then we'll see where our budget is after ICAS (plus what goodies the military may support us with).

We have also added Erik Edgren (who will be flying a new night act) and Bill Stein as well.

Still have a bit of ways to go with our announcements but I'll post the lineup we have booked thus far. Still working on some and hopefully we can swing them. We also will feature the 75th Anniversary of the Air Force with the Thunderbirds & F-35 so we're hoping we may be able to score at least one or two other Air Force assets (even if they are just fly bye).

Air Show Lineup (as of 12/14/2021)
-United States Air Force Thunderbirds
-United States Air Force F-35 Lighting II Demo Team
-United States Air Force Heritage Flight (warbird pending)
-Phillips 66 Aerostars
-Misty Blues All-Woman Skydiving Team
-Matt Younkin in the Twin Beech 18
-Rob Holland "Ultimate Airshows" MSX
-Bill Stein in the Zivko Edge 540
-Ken Rieder "Redline Airshows"
-Nathan Hammond "GhostWriter Airshows"
-Nathan Hammond Skywriting
-Kyle Franklin's Flying Circus Comedy Act
-Erik Edgren Clipped Wing Taylorcraft Aerobatics

-Announcer: Phil Dacy

Our Night Air Show will feature:
