HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah — The “Warriors Over the Wasatch” Air and Space Show will return to the Top of Utah June 23-24 and Utah Transit Authority will provide FrontRunner service both Saturday and Sunday.

A special $5 round-trip fare went on sale June 1 via UTA’s GoRide mobile app.

There is also a $15 UTA group pass (up to four people) available for purchase on the UTA website, vending machines or UTA customer service centers. Both fares allow for travel on FrontRunner, TRAX, Streetcar and local bus.

Admission to the show is free, but because of traffic and parking, organizers say UTA is the best way to get to and from the show.

Air Show attendees will travel to the Clearfield FrontRunner station and then catch a bus straight to the event entrance. Visit the UTA website for schedules and more information.

Hill’s Air and Space Show 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.

The show will feature the United States Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team, along with the F-35A Lightning II, the U.S. Special Operations parachute team, and a number of other military and civilian aerial demonstrations.

In addition to the flying, there will be dozens of displays of modern and historic military aircraft and equipment, 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 STEM, or Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education. Some of the largest aerospace companies in the world will have displays as well as interactive activities.

While admission to the air show is free, there are also VIP tickets available to purchase via a partnership with The Utah Air Show Foundation that will allow attendees higher levels of accommodations – including private seating, and food and beverage options.

As the event draws nearer, organizers encourage visiting www.hill.af.mil for the most up-to-date information on performers, VIP tickets, public transportation options, traffic, parking, event maps, and more.
