August 15-16, 2020

U.S. Air Force Sending Three Fighter Jet Demo Teams to Perform

The 2020 OC Air Show has been rescheduled for August 15-16 over the beach and boardwalk of Ocean City.

The U.S. Air Force has scheduled the F-22 Raptor, F-35 Lighting II and A-10 Thunderbolt II demonstration teams to perform at the event.

“This will be the one of the first times aviation fans can see a demonstration of the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lighting II stealth fighters at the same event,” said Bryan Lilley, Chairman of the OC Air Show. “We are also eagerly anticipating the release of the Thunderbirds’ updated schedule and we’re hopeful they will be performing as well.”

Originally scheduled for the second weekend of June, the show was postponed due to COVID-19. To that end, show officials will be working with the Town of Ocean City to implement a series of “Stay Safe and Separate Initiatives.”This will help ensure the safety of spectators at the rescheduled August event.For more details please visit https://ocairshow.com

“The stage for the OC Air Show is 10 miles wide and 1,000 feet high,” said Lilley. “Spectators can watch from their backyard, balcony, boat or the beach, making it the ideal event for the Ocean City community to host in the era of social distancing.”

To receive the latest updates on the rescheduled event as soon as they become available please subscribe to the email newsletter at OCAirShow.com or follow the event Facebook page.
