Airshow Rescheduled to June 2016

Following consultation with our military and civilian performers, and to avoid conflicting dates with other events, the Board of Directors has elected to reschedule the Great Lakes International Airshow from 2015 to June 2016.

The Board wishes to thank everyone including our sponsors, performers, partners, suppliers and our thousands of show patrons for their past interest and  support of this great event, and looks forward to seeing you all back in 2016.
