The 2019 Air Show brought “Red, White, and ZOOM” to Cleveland featuring the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and first ever appearance of the full F-35 Lightning II Tactical Demonstration. Fans flooded Burke Lakefront airport to see history in the making as the F-35 proved its power and agility throughout the Air Show weekend. The 2019 line-up also included demonstrations from the A-10C Thunderbolt II, U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team, C-130 Hercules, Lucas Oil Airshows, and Shockwave Jet Truck. The World Famous GEICO Skytypers performed their thrilling, low-altitude flying demonstration each show day and even skytyped messages across the Cleveland skyline. 2019 also marked Julie Clark’s last appearance in Cleveland as she made her farewell tour on the Air Show circuit after many years of historic flying. Spectators inside the gates explored the B-25 Mitchell Bomber “Yankee Warrior” and B-17 Flying Fortress “Yankee Lady” Aircraft Exhibit. Other static displays included C-5 Super Galaxy, KC-135 Stratotanker, and P-3 Orion. The Air Show grounds also hosted many interactive displays including the U.S. Army Mobile Usability Lab (MULE) and the U.S. Air Force Hangar where participants used virtual reality technology to change the tire on a C-130 or repair a hydraulic leak on a CV-22.
