We are thrilled to welcome back one of the most well-known jet teams, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds! Officially known as the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, their sharply choreographed moves showcase and display the pride, precision and professionalism of American Airmen. As the jets take to the skies and fly only a few feet from wingtip to wingtip, the crowd gets a glimpse into the years of training and experience every fighter pilot undergoes. Integrating some of the maximum capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon – the Air Force’s premier multi-role fighter jet—the solo pilots exemplify what the Air Force is all about. Make sure you come out and see this loud and proud routine at this year’s Bell Fort Worth Alliance Air Show!
It will be the talk of the show when Bill Stein in the Edge 540 flies across the North Texas sky. Using cutting-edge technology, this airplane continuously changes color depending on the perspective of the viewer and the angle of sunlight. Logging over 5,000 hours of aerobatic and formation flight, Bill is sure to wow the crowd in his green… purple... blue… yellow… pink…orange… and gold Edge 540. You won’t want to miss a second of this spectacular display!
Every heart-stopping gyroscopic tumble of a Michael Goulian air show performance is a combination of over 30 years of practice, dedication and refinement. Watch as one of North America’s most decorated aerobatic pilots flies above the crowd with crisp precision. This signature performance will demonstrate competition aerobatics and Goulian’s trademark of perfection.
This team is sure to thrill with their jaw-dropping performance! You won’t believe your eyes as one plane flies off the wing of another, only just beginning the breathtaking aerobatic dance in the sky. Join Sean Tucker, one of the Living Legends of Flight, an elite group of aviators and astronauts, and Jessy Panzer, one of the country’s few female aerobatics pilots, as they simultaneously delight in their signature maneuvers and formations.
The Air Combat Command A-10C Thunderbolt II Demonstration Team, stationed out of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, is set to showcase the precision aerial maneuvers and unique combat capabilities of the A-10 “Warthog.” Providing invaluable protection to troops on the ground, this plane is one of Air Force’s premier close air support aircrafts.
Come out and see the incredible full capability demonstration of the F-35 Lightning II, also known as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, a fifth-generation combat aircraft. Declared operational by three branches of the U.S. Department of Defense—Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy—this aircraft has advanced stealth, exceptional agility and maneuverability, and sensor and information fusion. During combat, these planes are designed to provide pilots with higher survivability, situational awareness and effectiveness as they perform ground attacks, aerial intelligence and air defense missions.
The All Veteran Parachute Team (AVPT) is made up of active and retired military personnel and other patriotic Americans whose mission is to remember, honor and serve the past and future of the U.S. military. Experience firsthand the incredible skills these men and women acquired from years of military training and combat.
Accelerating from 0 to 300 mph in just 10 seconds, this fire truck could beat an airplane in a race—now that’s fast! Aftershock Jet Truck is the world’s fastest fire truck, reaching speeds of 407 mph and generating 24,000 horsepower. It brings a whole new meaning to “fire truck” as it leaves a blaze streaking down the Fort Worth Alliance Airport runway.
Drive into one of the most thrilling experiences of a lifetime with Precision Exotics! Returning to the air show again this year, we are bringing you the opportunity to take a turn behind the wheel of some of the most recognizable supercars in the world.

Every spectator will enjoy watching you race down the tarmac as planes fly across the North Texas skies.
The Air National Guard Band of the Southwest, historically known as the 531st Air Force Band, is made up of 30-plus members that maintain 40 years of tradition and heritage. As the hallmark of military bands, members maintain a high degree of musical performance skill in order to support both official military functions and community relations programs.
As a part of the ground attraction display at the air show, the STEM Discovery Zone is an interactive journey for children where their imagination takes flight. Since 2015, the STEM Discovery Zone has grown into a 4,800-square-foot exhibit that includes a Legends and Heroes Autograph area and 25 nonprofit participants, mostly with a connection to STEM or youth aviation programs. This area offers hands-on activities designed to engage our youth and encourage them to learn more about Fort Worth aviation history through our partnership with the Fort Worth Aviation Museum.
