U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds to Headline 2023 Air Show
Cleveland will host the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds as headliners of the 2023 Cleveland National Air Show presented by Discount Drug Mart. Each show day, the six select Thunderbird demonstration pilots will put their distinct red, white and blue F-16 Fighting Falcon jet fighters through a choreographed 50 minute performance at speeds up to 500 mph and as close as three feet from each other.
2023 will mark the 70th year the Thunderbirds have been performing and Cleveland is a part of the team’s rich history. In 1965, the Thunderbirds made their first Cleveland appearance flying their North American F-100s (first supersonic jet fighters).
