HILL AIR FORCE BASE—After missing the last few years due to COVID, the popular Warriors Over the Wasatch Air & Space Show will return this summer on June 25-26 at HAFB. With about a 100 days to go, event organizers officially announced the performer line up for this year’s show.

“This year’s event will feature some of the same top aerial performers that audiences have come to expect from the Hill air show,” said Lt. Col. Jay Michaels, 75th Operations Support Squadron commander and Hill air show director. “The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team will be headlining and for the first time since the team stood up at Hill, the F-35A Demonstration Team will be performing at its home air show.”

The show features military and civilian aerial acts and includes the following:

• U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds

• U.S. Air Force F-35A Demonstration Team

• U.S. Army Golden Knights

• U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet Legacy Flight

• Jeff Boerboon

• Gregory “Wired” Colyer

• Bill Stein Air Shows

• Bob Freeman

• Rob Holland

• Brad Wursten

• Matt Younkin

• Buck Roetman

• Yellow Thunder

• Shockwave Truck

• Mini Jet Air Shows

• Vampire Air Shows

• Mark Peterson

• FacePay Air Demonstration

• FireWalkers Pyro

“We’re excited to open our gates to feature both military and civilian aerial performances with the backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains and in front of thousands of fans lined up on our airfield to witness this spectacular show,” said Michaels. “We are fortunate to have the incredible support of Utah’s communities for Hill Air Force Base. While the Hill air show serves to showcase how the Air Force and our sister services support our nation’s defense, it also serves as a ‘thank you’ to our communities for their continued support.”
