It appears the A-10 Demo Team was typed in by mistake as they will be at El Centro, CA that weekend.

Airshow cancelled
After multiple meetings and conversations with local civilian and military health officials, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Fiesta of Flight Air and Space Expo due to COVID-19 concerns. We are doing everything we can in conjunction with local officials to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.

“While there are no cases in Val Verde County or Laughlin Air Force Base, we are taking necessary precautions and following risk-based measures consistent with guidance from the Department Of Defense and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),” said Col. Lee Gentile, 47th Flying Training Wing commander.

“We regret having to make this decision, but are interested in keeping our Airmen, their families, and the families in the Del Rio community safe,” Gentile said. "It is our responsibility to keep our Airmen, families and communities safe.”

Information regarding COVID-19 will be released as it becomes available.
