Cleveland Air Show 2010

Lakefront Airport should be abuzz right now with fans looking to see one of the most famous air shows in the country. However, the weather has not been anyone’s friend in that area and for the first time since 1974, the air show had to be cancelled. The news from show promoters included a teaser indicating that the stunts were new and more exciting than ever before. The Cleveland Air Show 2010 was suppose to be the highlight of the weekend.

Ticketholders may still get a chance to see the military jet team in action as the show is scheduled to run through Monday evening. This particular event started on Labor Day weekend in 1964. The general routine is for the small shows to kick into action first and then the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels put on the finale. This year’s show was to feature the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the MSMC Fat Albert (C-130 Hercules), the US Army Golden Knights, the F/A-18F Super Hornets and more. The fans may get to see a few of the acts but the weather has definitely dampened the Cleveland Air Show 2010.

Others expected at the air show were the U.S. Navy Legacy Flight, the F-15E Strike Eagle, the Red Eagle Air Sports (Pitts Special), the Gen Soucy (Grumman Ag Cat) and Teresa Stokes. No doubt long time supporters of the show are upset that mother nature had to rain on their party. It’s not every day that Wingwalking, the B-17 Flying Fortress “Yankee Lady”, the Mitsubishi A6M Xero “TORA 101” and the Shockwave Jet Truck are hanging out waiting to put on a show. The Cleveland Air Show 2010 may still get a few acts in the air and hopefully Mad Bomber Pyrotechnics and Wall of Fire along with the Metro Life Flight and the Eurocopter EC-145 and the TS-Iskra will still be on hand to show off their mad skills.
