There’s nothing quite like the exciting entertainment of flight.
From air vs. land racing to aerobatic and veteran flights, the Lake of the Ozarks Air Show will have something for everyone. This year, we invite you to be a part of the land and sky action as we proudly sponsor the show that is saluting our military.
The Lake of the Ozarks Air Show doesn’t disappoint. This year, there are many acts in the works that promise to impress aviation fans from all walks of life.
The Alabama Boys
A bit of theatrics, an incredibly cool plane, and a lot of fun! The Alabama Boys show centers around the 1946 Piper J-3 Cub. The act begins as Greg – farmer Clem Cleaver – climbs up on the announcer’s stand, demanding a flight lesson. Later in the show, he “steals” the plane and takes off alone, with his whole crew chasing. Grandpa shoots off a tire to get him down, and Clem lands on his pickup truck as it races down the runway.
Kenny Carroll plans to race a Josh Franklin Motorsports 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo with aerobatic planes. This looks to be a fun land vs. air race that will give chills to people who have a need for speed.
Brian Correll’s Stunning Skydives
And if speed is your thing, you won’t want to miss Brian Correll’s air show. Correll has accumulated over 5,500 hours in various aircrafts. At this year’s air show, he will impress spectators with sky dives and acrobatics sure to get the heart racing. For a taste of what’s to come, watch this video from one of his past performances.
B-25J Mitchell World War II Bomber
Come and see the North American B-25 Mitchell, a twin-engine bomber that became standard equipment for the Allied Air Forces in World War II. The B-25 Bomber was perhaps the most versatile aircraft in World War II. It became the most heavily armed airplane in the world, was used for high- and low-level bombing, strafing, photo-reconnaissance, submarine patrol and even as a fighter, and was distinguished as the aircraft that completed the historic raid over Tokyo in 1942.
KC Flight Formation Team
Watch a team of pilots take to the sky to fly in formation as the KC Flight Formation Team turns their plane’s noses upward. This team of 10 Formation Flying Inc. carded pilots will put on a terrific show, much like this one.
On the Ground
Vintage aircraft will also be on display so attendees of all ages can touch, feel, and get a close up look at these impressive planes. On the list this year is the B-25J Mitchell World War II Bomber, which first took flight in 1940. This plane carries 5,000 pounds in bombs, and some versions could even carry 75mm cannons, machine guns, and added fire power.
Look up while you’re there and you’ll see the Free Fall Express Skydivers make their appearance in a unique way.
And of course, the ever popular Ping Pong Ball Drop will have kids running around with delight. If they find the right ones, they could win your family a large prize (or two).
