Gates open at 10:00 a.m. Show starts at noon

There’s a buzz in Southwest Louisiana about the Chennault International Airshow, which will offer roaring jets, exhilarating air stunts and nostalgic homecoming for vintage aircrafts of all types.

It all takes place May 10-12 at Chennault International Airport. Headlining the 2019 lineup will be the Air Combat Command F-16 Viper Demonstration Team, performing precision aerial maneuvers to demonstrate the unique capabilities of one of the Air Force’s premier multi-role fighters, the F-16 Fighting Falcon.

Highlights also include the Phillips 66 Aerostars; the Red Bull Aerobatic Helicopter, Jump Team and aerobatic pilot Kirby Chambliss; Kevin Coleman; B-17 Flying Fortress “Texas Raiders”; the Aftershock Jet Truck; Wing Walker Ashley Shelton; “American Dream” P-40 Warhawk; aerobatic pilot Jacquie B; Randy Ball; Matt Younkin’s Beech 18 performance; Alabama Boys Flying Circus; and BMX Star Terry Adams.

There also will be flights and ground displays of aircraft and exhibits that salute Southwest Louisiana’s military heritage and Chennault’s own rich history. Food and beverages will be sold, and numerous family-friendly activities in the free Kid Zone will be available. 

The Twilight Show will be held on Friday, May 10 from 5-9 p.m. The Friday-evening twilight show is an abbreviated show featuring spectacular aerial acts against the darkening evening and night sky. Tickets for the Friday Twilight Show are $15, and kids 12 & under free with the purchase of an adult ticket.
