Q. Why a Drive-In Airshow for 2021?

A. The Drive-in Airshow model was an overwhelming success in 2020. With the state of Covid last November (2020) when tickets went on sale for the 2021 show, remaining with the drive-in model was the best course. Once we committed to the Drive-In format, there is no way to change models in midstream. We plan to use a Hybrid Drive-In model for the show this October 30-31, 2021.  The Hybrid Drive-in model allows our guest to freely walk around and enjoy the attractions to include: food & beverage vendors, exhibitors, military vehicle displays recruitors & statics, helicopter rides, premium seating and the popular Kids Zone.
