After a 2 year break due to the pandemic, America’s Freedom Fest, is returning to the Goshen Municipal Airport, Saturday, July 9, 2022.
Headlining this year’s event will be the United States Air Force (USAF) A-10 Demonstration Team. Air Combat Command announced at the 2021 International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) that America’s Freedom Fest had been selected to host the USAF A-10 Demonstration Team.
Airport Manager Randy Sharkey said America’s Freedom Fest is ranked as one of the largest single day air shows in the country, attracting 25,000 – 30,000 spectators. This year’s show will be one of the best yet, with the USAF A-10 Demonstration Team, he added.
“There are only a handful of shows selected each year that receive a military jet demo and we are fortunate to have showed up on their radar,” Sharkey said. Unlike previous military participation at Goshen Air shows, the A-10 Thunderbolt II will be staging their operations at the Goshen Airport.
Attendees can anticipate an incredible and varied air show line-up to include: Randy Ball & the Mig-17, Chris Darnell & the Shockwave Jet Truck, Red Bull Helicopter Air shows, The Phillips 66 Aerostars 3 ship Aerobatic Team, Susan Dacy Barnstorming America in the super Stearman Biplane, Michael Vakin in the Extra 300, Bob Richards in “Machaira”, Rotors N Ribs helicopter performers and so much more!
In a Salute to America’s Freedom, the airshow activities will culminate with an incomparable fireworks display by the Madbomber Fireworks Production Company.
