If you like it fast and loud, Robins Air Force Base is the place to be Sept. 28 and 29, 2019.
The Thunder Over Georgia Air Show, featuring the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will bring a little bit of something to amaze and inspire casual watchers, aircraft enthusiasts and future Airmen alike.
The Thunderbirds are an elite team of pilots, maintenance, medical and administrative personnel. The team’s eight highly-skilled pilots are among the world’s best, and promise to put on a must-see show.
The Thunderbird team has a total of 12 officers and more than 120 enlisted personnel, representing nearly 30 career fields, who keep the team operational. Every show season, 24 professionals in various aircraft maintenance specialties are selected to travel with the team, to ensure the aircraft are always ready.
The show will also give spectators an opportunity to see the 2019 F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team – a first for Robins Air Force Base. Based at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, the Raptor Demo will perform precision aerial maneuvers while demonstrating the unique capabilities of the fifth-generation fighter aircraft.
Thunder Over Georgia attendees will see the full capabilities demonstration by the Raptor, which offers a combination of stealth, super cruise, maneuverability and integrated avionics, coupled with improved supportability. Performing both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions, it can’t be matched by any known or projected fighter aircraft.
Maj. Paul Lopez II is the F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team commander and pilot and, as such, is responsible for representing Air Combat Command, the United States Air Force, the Department of Defense and the United States of America at more than 20 air shows yearly.
