“We are thrilled to welcome back the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds to Alliance and have them perform at North Texas’ first drive-in air show experience,” said Christina Carey, director of special projects for Alliance Air Productions, producer of the event and a nonprofit organization created by Hillwood.

“In addition to the jaw-dropping aerial performances, we’re focused on creating a family-fun and engaging environment that guests can only experience at the air show, including a free swag bag, parade and picnic-like setting,” Carey said.
With health and safety as the top priority, social distancing standards and additional protocols will be in place.

Alliance Air Productions continues to monitor updates relevant to the area. If local, state, federal, military, or FAA entities determine that Alliance Air Productions can’t host a 2020 air show due to matters that are COVID-19 related, advance ticket purchases will be refunded.

Since 2006, more than $760,000 has been distributed to more than 70 nonprofit organizations. This year’s proceeds will be distributed to local nonprofit organizations.
