The 2019 Joint Base Andrews Air Show

May 10, 2019 – May 12, 2019 all-day
Danny Miller

Featuring the Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy Blue Angels, the 2019 Joint Base Andrews Air Show is scheduled for May 10-12, 2019.

This year, EAA 186 has been invited back to display at the Joint Base Andrews Air Show! It’s a great opportunity for folks to see a free, local airshow and static displays of military aviation and ground equipment. Our chapter is looking for both individuals and aircraft for the event. We basically talk the EAA talk (homebuilding, Young Eagles, Vintage Aircraft, AirVenture, etc). Having enough support allows everyone to take turns displaying our fleet, and touring the ramp. Our attendees do need to get vetted (for flightline badges) so early registration is a must. Flying into Joint Base Andrews has its own set of processes!

Let us know if you have questions or want to help. We do need people to bring out/return supplies that won’t fit in our airplanes. This includes: 20 orange traffic cones, ropes, and stakes, along with some shade booths from the chapter house. Be part of a great weekend.

If you plan to display your aircraft or volunteer for ground crew with other EAA 186 members, we need to know ASAP for VIP access. Contact Chapter President: Danny Miller

A variety of presentations from military services and other organizations will be present at the air show including the KC-135, the F-16 Fighting Falcon, and the UH-1N Iroquois.
