Airshow London - September 12 & 13, 2020
Official Press Release

Airshow London takes flight with Canada's first socially responsible and physically distant air show

Airshow London in London, Ontario, is extremely excited to announce their 2020 air show will take place September 12 and 13 as a drive-in format, offering Canada's first socially responsible and physically distant air show. This new and innovative approach will continue to feature a traditional three-hour air display, but removed this year will be the static display, food vendors and displays.

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds will make their only Canadian appearance this year at Airshow London

Airshow London has always adhered to advanced safety measures as the show's highest priority is the well-being of guests, volunteers and performers. And now with COVID-19, new measures will be introduced that conform to public health guidelines to ensure an experience that minimizes risk to health and safety to everyone involved.

The F-22 Raptor Demo Team is scheduled to perform at this year's show

The airport grounds can accommodate close to 2500 cars with this socially responsible model. Guests will arrive with a pre-purchased ticket (1 ticket per vehicle) and be directed to park in their own 20 X 25-foot space to enjoy the show either inside or outside their vehicle. Guests can bring their own refreshments, listen to the show on their car radios, and utilize portable washrooms.

Guests get their own 20 X 25-foot parking spot to watch the air show from outside their vehicles, while staying physically distanced from others

"We know how much the air show is enjoyed by the community, so while the impact of COVID-19 prevents us from producing our traditional-style event, we wanted to create a solution that minimizes risk and interaction while still offering an exciting and family-friendly event," says Jim Graham, Chair, Airshow London.

Organizers of Airshow London have adhered to, and in some cases surpassed, public health guidelines in order to present a family-friendly event that is safe for everyone involved

The air show itself will offer a rare and spectacular line-up of Canadian and American military aircraft. Along with aircraft representing the Royal Canadian Air Force, confirmed to appear are an unprecedented four U.S. demonstration teams:

  • The only Canadian appearance in 2020 by the United States Air Force Thunderbirds
  • U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team
  • U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team
  • U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster Demonstration Team

Additional aircraft are still to be determined.

Organizers are excited to host the C-17 Globemaster Demo Team all the way from the west coast

"The past few months have been devasting to so many in our community, and now that we are allowed to gather in a socially responsible manner, we are excited to offer this amazing opportunity for outdoor entertainment," adds Graham. "And to have commitments from four U.S. demonstration teams at a Canadian show is extraordinary, and confirms they are itching to get out there and fly."

The Golden Knights were booked to appear in London since December 2019 and they have been most supportive through the past several months

Tickets are on sale at www.airshowlondon.com. For people who already purchased General Admission tickets for this year's show prior to the Drive-In announcement, those tickets will be valid for next year's show August 27-29, 2021 when Airshow London welcomes the United States Navy's Demonstration Team, the Blue Angels.
