Cleveland National Air Show cleared for takeoff this weekend


CLEVELAND (WJW) — The Cleveland Air Show is flying back into town this weekend.

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will grace the skies at Burke Lakefront Airport Saturday through Monday and Clevelanders can once again celebrate this long-standing tradition along the shores of Lake Erie.

The six select Thunderbird demonstration pilots are set to put their distinctive red, white, and blue F-16 Falcon jet fighters through a choreographed 50 minute performance at speeds up to 500 mph and as close as three feet from each other.

Tickets went on sale for the show last month.

This year, they are only available in advance online here. There will be no gate sales.

The event was canceled last year due to COVID-19.

General Admission Tickets are considered lawn seats. You’ll want to bring a lawn chair or blanket if you get one of these tickets.
