HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah —

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds have announced they resumed their 2018 show schedule and are expected at Hill Air Force Base’s Warriors Over the Wasatch Air and Space Show June 23-24.

The base will open its gates to the public to witness the pride and precision of the awe-inspiring Airmen of the United States Air Force, along with the F-35A Lightning II, the U.S. Special Operations parachute team, and a number of other military and civilian aerial demonstrations.

Sixteen world class acts will fly non-stop from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A full list of performers, including images, is available on the Warriors Over the Wastach Air and Space Show website at www.hill.af.mil.

In addition to the flying, there will be dozens of displays of modern and historic military aircraft and equipment to explore, and attendees will be able to talk and interact with America’s proud Airmen.

For the first time, this show will dedicate an entire hangar to science, technology, engineering and mathematics education. Some of the largest aerospace companies in the world will have displays as well as interactive activities.

Hill’s open house and airshow takes place every other year. It is one of the largest shows in the country, and the largest single event in Utah with regular attendees traveling from surrounding states and Canada.

While the air and space show is free, there are VIP tickets available to purchase that will allow attendees higher levels of accommodations including private seating, and food and beverage options.

As the event draws nearer, organizers encourage visiting air and space show website for the most up-to-date information on performers, VIP tickets, public transportation options, traffic, parking, event maps, and more.
