Event organizers have announced the official performer line up for the Warriors Over the Wasatch Open House and Air Show happening June 29-30.

This year’s event features some of the same top aerial performers that audiences have come to expect from the Hill air show and is centered around the Breaking Barriers Together theme, meaning we are all one community.

“Our air show is one of the most act-packed air shows in the country,” said Lt. Col. Diana Bradfield, 75th Operations Support Squadron commander and 2024 Air Show operations director. “We just want our community to be able to appreciate the historical aspects of our nation’s air power might and see what our next generation has to offer as well.”

The show will feature military and civilian aerial acts, including the following:

• U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds
• U.S. Air Force F-35A Demonstration Team
• U.S. Air Force B-2 flyby (June 29)
• U.S. Air Force E-3 flyby (June 30)
• U.S. Air Force KC-135 flyby
• U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight
• U.S. Air Force Special Warfare Jumpers
• U.S. Special Operations Command's premier aerial parachute demonstration team
• U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet Legacy Flight

Supplementing the extensive aerial show will be a wide variety of civilian and military helicopters, fighters, bombers, cargo and refueling aircraft static displays. In addition, the ramp will display military ground transport and fighting vehicles, and dozens of assorted vendors and exhibits.

“This year we are so proud to have Tora Tora Tora join our lineup,” Bradfield said. “Tora Tora Tora is part of the Commemorative Air Force where their act serves as a living history, highlighting the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. We are also excited to showcase a joint airpower demonstration, simulating an airfield seizure, with our sister service partners.”

Another new act is Tinstix of Dynamite. This high-energy display team combines multiple performers to create on action-packed show with planes, pyro and jet trucks.

Capt. Melanie “MACH” Kluesner, with Hill’s 421st Fighter Squadron is the new commander of the F-35A Lightning II Demonstration Team and will showcase the unique aerial capabilities of the Air Force’s most advanced 5th generation, multi-role stealth fighter.

STEM City makes a repeat appearance, featuring an exciting display of hands-on booths and activities to encourage students and educate parents on opportunities in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math.

Bradfield said she hopes people will take part in the robust STEM exhibit, climb around a fighter jet, eat some amazing food from local vendors and connect with the Hill Air Force base community.

“This air show serves as our 'thank you' to the local community for all of their support to Hill AFB,” Bradfield said. “Our community is special and our military is diverse. The air show serves to showcase our growing capabilities and the strength our military members and our community collectively contribute to our nation’s defense.
