Air Show Tips

Every year we receive dozens of questions about the air show, but some of them come up more often than others and should be of interest to anyone planning to attend. Below are some of the more frequently asked questions and their answers, as well as information about what kind of security our guests can expect to see when they visit. The increased security measures put into place by the Department of Defense, the FAA, and law enforcement officials during the past few years are still in effect for all air shows, including the one at Sheppard. Please remember, that these security requirements are for your safety and are imposed upon all of us equally. Air Force and local law enforcement officials will be in place at base entrances to enforce these rules. All individuals and vehicles entering the base are subject to search. The rules and their enforcement will not be final until the day of the air show when you enter the gates at Sheppard AFB and pass through the security checkpoints.


Why aren’t there any times listed with the performances?

One of the things we’ve learned during past air shows is that schedules are almost impossible to keep. There are hundreds of minor issues that can arise which have in the past led to delays, schedule swaps, or adjusted performances. Additionally, some fly-bys, particularly of military aircraft in high demand for the Global War on Terrorism, may not be confirmed until the day of the air show. For this reason, we will not be publishing a full schedule of events.


Is it safe to come to the air show?

Safety is always a primary concern at air shows. Sheppard AFB works very closely with local and federal authorities to ensure safety. Sheppard AFB follows and enforces all rules and regulations as required. You will notice extra uniformed security at the air show, both military and civilian.


What are the changes to air show security?

The heightened security instituted during the past few years is still in effect. All backpacks, coolers, and tote bags must be left in your vehicle and will not be allowed on the airfield. Signs will be posted at the entrances to the parking and gate areas reminding you of these restrictions. Gate officials may refuse admittance to persons trying to enter with such items. Please remember that Sheppard AFB is not responsible for items left in vehicles in the parking areas.


If I cannot bring something into the air show, can I go out to my car during the show?

Yes. Since this show has no admission fee, you may leave and re-enter as you desire. Anyone re-entering will have to go through security checkpoints again.


Can I bring a purse?

Small purses are permitted, subject to approval by gate security personnel and a hand search at the gate. Large purses (tote bag type) are not permitted.


Can I bring my camera, video camera, and cell phone?

Yes. There are no restrictions on electronics. However, large camera bags are not permitted. Bring only necessary camera equipment, leaving extra attachments at home. A small fanny pack or camera vest is useful for carrying extra film and small lenses.


Can I bring water, drinks, and food?

Outside food or alcohol is prohibited. Exceptions: Baby food, breast milk, and formula are permitted. Attendees are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle to fill at water stations. The items must be hand-carried and cannot be in a cooler or carry bag. All items brought in are subject to approval by gate security personnel and a hand search at the gate.


Can I bring a folding chair?

Yes. If your folding chair comes in a carrying case, please have the chair out of the case as you go through the security checkpoint.


Can parents bring a stroller, diaper bag, change of clothes, etc. for their children?

Yes. Strollers and wagons will be hand-searched at the gate. Please bring only necessary items in a small diaper bag, subject to hand-search at the gate. Large diaper bags may not be permitted. You can return to your vehicle during the show to get extra clothes, re-stock diaper items, etc.
