Event details

The Vermilion Regional Airport is excited to be hosting the 2017 Vermilion Regional Air Expo. Our last Air Expo was in 1986 and the last air show was in the early 80’s. The Expo will be two fun packed days for all ages starting Friday night with a meet and greet in Town Center. The kids will enjoy the aviation theme kid zone with aviation inflatable’s, a rock climbing wall, and much more.

The highlight will be an Air Show featuring the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team flying their T6 Texans. We have static displays to walk through and visit with the crews featuring a C 54 & B 25. Other warbirds will be on display such as A T-6 Texan, P 51 Mustang, and A 10 Warthog. There will be bands performing on Saturday following the Air Show. Many vendors will be set up with plenty of good food and cold beer. Come join us for a great time.
