America’s most lethal aircraft will make an appearance this month at the Wings Over Golden Isles Air Show.
The U.S. Air Force Air Combat Command F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team will join the already stacked list of aerial acrobatics scheduled for the March 24-26 shows that includes the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels.
“The F-22 Raptor joins the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the AeroShell Demonstration Team and many other performers to give the Wings Over Golden Isles event a world-class lineup,” said John Cowman, president of JLC AirShow Management. “We couldn’t be more excited about hosting this amazing team in Brunswick.”
The Raptor team will kick off the weekend’s events with a twilight show on Friday, March 24 and will continue to wow crowds with daylight shows on Saturday and Sunday. Stationed at Langley Air Force Base in Langley, Va. — home of the Air Combat Command, the Raptor team flies the $140 million Lockheed Martin jets at air shows around the globe to show off their incredible maneuverability. The demonstration is expected to include the power loop, split and tail slide as well as a high speed pass and dedication pass — combat maneuvers performed at much lower altitudes for air show purposes.
In addition to the air show performers, the Wings Over Golden Isles event will feature Southern rock favorite .38 Special in a live Friday evening concert. The concert will take place immediately following the Friday evening twilight air show.
