The City of Owensboro is excited to announce the addition of the Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 fighter jet demonstration to the 2015 Owensboro Air Show, which is scheduled for September 11-13, 2015. 


Spectators will have the opportunity to see the CF-18 and other aircraft participating in the airshow up close on Friday September 11 during the static display at the Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport.  The static display is open from 4:00 p.m. until approximately 8:30 p.m.  Additionally, the City continues to work with military units to have several other aircraft on display including a C-130, UH-60, and E-2 Hawkeye.  Admission for the activities at the airport is $2.00, and children ages 12 and younger free. 


In recognition of Patriot Day (September 11), all first-responders and military receive free admission courtesy of Century Aluminum.  As a sponsor for the 2015 Air Show, Century Aluminum will also be registering first-responders and military at their booth at the airport on Friday for two (2) lucky winners to receive the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride along in the B-17 Bomber on Saturday prior to the start of the air show.  The activities Friday will be capped-off with a 10-minute fireworks display presented by Independence Bank.
