SEPTEMBER 11-13, 2015


The 4th annual Owensboro Air Show is returning to the Owensboro Riverfront September 11-13, 2015.  The annual event brings visitors from all over the Midwest to watch the aerial demonstrations over the Ohio River.  This year’s event will feature the world-famous USAF Thunderbirds Jet Demonstration Team.  With the participation of the Thunderbirds, city officials are required to close a larger area of the Ohio River during the practice sessions, as well as the air show performances throughout the weekend.  The larger safety area over the river requires the closure of the Glover Cary Bridge (Blue Bridge). 


The Blue Bridge will be closed the following days and times for activities surrounding the Air Show:

  • Friday, September 11 – 2:00pm – 4:00pm (Air Show practice sessions)
  • Saturday, September 12 – 8:00am – 4:00pm (Hilliard Lyons Bridge Run, Bridge Day and Air Show)
  • Sunday, September 13 – 2:30pm – 4:30pm (Air Show)
