Our Airshow Guide for 2016 links you to more than 180 events across the United States from April through November, featuring aircraft of all kinds in flight and on static display. Icons under each show’s description indicate whether particular performance teams, such as the US Navy Blue Angels or USAF Thunderbirds, will appear. (A key to the icons appears below the map.)
A new performer for 2016 is the F-35A Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter, which just qualified to appear in heritage flights alongside classic airplanes of the WWII, Vietnam and Korean war eras.
