The America Strong 2020 Wings Over North Georgia “Drive-In Air Show” will headline the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds at the Russell Regional Airport in Rome, Georgia on October 24-25. Additional military performers will include the U.S. Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II,  F-16 Viper and C-17 Globemaster II demonstration teams.

In order to host a safe event compliant with state and local ordinances, air show organizers opted to shift to a drive-in/tailgate format for the 2020 show. The format will allow for proper social distancing while providing spectators with an amazing experience featuring one of the top military and civilian performer line-ups in a single air show.

“Ticket sales have been strong and front row parking spaces have already sold out,” said air show organizer and JLC AirShow Management President John Cowman. “General airfield parking spaces will be assigned based on guests’ arrival time with the earliest arrivers placed in spots closest to the show flight line. We have added an extra hour of pre-show flying demonstrations for those who arrive early to secure the best spaces.”

Parking Gates open at 10:00 a.m. and Pre-Show Aerial Demonstrations begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday & Sunday. The pre-show activities include 94th Airlift Wing airdrops & C-130H3 Hercules capabilities demonstrations from the aircrews assigned at  Dobbins Air Reserve Base.
