The 2016 Air Show…“Roar Over the Shore” featured an unprecedented line-up including the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, U.S. Air Force F-35 Lightning II, and U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor. Cleveland was the first civilian Air Show in the United States to host both the F-22 and F-35 in a Heritage Flight, and air show fans gathered in the thousands to witness it! The historic line-up paired with beautiful weather all three days brought in nearly 100,000 fans for the Labor Day Weekend event. Other performers included award winning aerobatic pilot Matt Chapman, dual aerobatic team Redline Air Shows, and world famous Shockwave Jet Truck. WWII aircraft took to the skies including the B-25 Mitchell Bomber “Georgie’s Gal” and beautifully restored P-51 Mustang “Baby Duck.” Inside the gates, air show fans witnessed the legendary Batcopter and Batmobile in action from the original hit TV series. Ground attractions included the NASA Glenn Research Center Display, Tuskegee Airmen Exhibit, and U.S. Air Force Performance Lab. Due to the impact of Federal Government Sequestration budget cuts on the Department of Defense, the number of military static displays were limited to civilian air shows.
