Wings Over North Georgia 2021 Airshow a Go

The 2021 Wings Over North Georgia Drive-In Airshow will take flight at the Russel Regional Airport in Rome, Georgia from October 30-31. The event will feature headlining performances by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and U.S. Air Force ACC A-10 Thunderbolt II Demonstration Team.COVID-19 restrictions in 2020 forced JLC Air Show Management to create guidelines and a format that allowed for social distancing or face the risk of cancellation. The result was a drive-in format. Airshow attendees embraced and enjoyed the new approach which provided a 10-by-20 foot spot for a vehicle with an adjacent 10-by-20 foot space for enjoying the airshow in a tailgate fashion with friends and family. As a result of the positive feedback, the decision was made to utilize the drive-in style airshow in 2021 with an added "hill-top" patio section offering a table, chairs, and umbrella for parties of six."We held our first event in 2012 and have always listened to feedback from the guests attending our airshows. Each year, we have incorporated improvements and enhancements to continue to offer one of the top airshow experiences in the U.S.," said JLC Air Show Management President John Cowman. "Wings Over North Georgia Airshow was recently voted USA Today's No. 7 fan favorite airshow in the world and is also a top-rated fall event for northwest Georgia. Our ninth annual airshow promises to be our best yet."Addition acts rounding out the lineup of world-class performers include: the U.S. Army SOCOM Black Daggers, U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster II, Scott Farnsworth Aerosports Racing Team, Michael Goulian, Mike Wiskus, Greg Koontz, Scott "Scooter" Yoak in the P-51 Mustang, and Jerry "Jive" Kirby in the T-28 Mad Dog. Preshow demonstrations will begin at 10 a.m. each day with the performances for the main show beginning at noon.
