Air Show

This year, the Offutt Air Show was supposed to take place on June 1st and 2nd (2019), but due to the massive flooding, the event has been canceled. In the past, each August, Offutt opened its doors to the public for the open-house and Air Show event.  This was an event to not be missed.  Sadly, the Air Show was canceled in 2013, but returned in 2014 but in July. For the year 2015, again the air show did not happen due to runway construction, and again in 2017 it did not happen due to the wing's high operational tempo. In 2018, it finally returned, but in 2019 after the dates were confirmed for June 1st and 2nd, the event got canceled again due to the massive flooding in Nebraska, which affected many building on the south end of th4 base. Go ahead and visit the website where they show the extent of the flooding. You can read more and see some views of the Offutt Air Show on its own page.

When it does happen again, the Offutt Air Show is the event to attend for "Air World" enthusiasts.  Expect to see paratroopers such as the Golden Knights from North Carolina, stunt planes, and the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels.  Depending on schedules of availability, there will be one or the other fighter jet flying team.  They tend to alternate, giving equal time to each team.

After the show, you can get an autographed picture of the flying team and see the aircraft a little closer.  For a young kid to get to meet one of these "flying heroes" could be all it takes to inspire a future you will be proud of.

Very likely sometime during the show, you will get to see a "Looking Glass" plane land or take off.  Together with the president at command in "Air Force 1,"  the "flying command post" gives the chief in command the ability to command the nation's military from the air in the event of a war.  The Looking Glass missions have maintained at least one airplane in the air since the 1960s.

Offutt will also have several aircraft on display during the open house.  Some are viewable only from the outside, while others, like the larger cargo planes, you can walk inside.  Some planes even have a ladder up to the cockpit where you can sit at the controls.
