Hello all I'm new to this air show forum. Me and my family just moved to Havana FL (near Tallahassee), would like to know if there are any shows you recommend to attend near the area (willing to travel)?

Best,
Owen

Hi there Owen! Your best bet is to look over the schedules and see if any of the cities seem doable for you. I know there are many airshows in Florida especially if you're willing to drive a bit. I would suggest looking over at least the Thunderbird, Blue Angel, and Snowbird schedules for the year as a start:

Gatineau and London are the farthest I've travelled for an airshow so far.

So now that I am going to go to my last show this season I will have gone to 6 this year.

Barksdale
Girls Fly 2- a small show in Abbotsford during the winter
Seafair
Abbotsford international Air Show
Gowen Thunder
Joint Base San Antonio Airshow

It has been a great year and by far Barksdale is the farthest for me since I live outside of Seattle,WA.
