Mark your calendars! The Vectren Dayton Air Show will be here earlier this year on July 7-8, 2011 at the Dayton International Airport. This year, the US Navy Blue Angels will be headlining. I love the Blue Angels and cannot wait to see them show this year!

I am always amazed by the planes along with the performers throughout the show. This year you can expect performances from Tora Tora Tora, Mike Goulian an Aerobatic performance,  A-4B Skyhawk, Misty Blues along with Dayton Air Show first timer, Sea Harrier, F/A2 and many more.  Be sure to check out the entire performer list along with the show schedule for this year.

Also, make plans to see the 100 Static Aircraft that will be displayed and learn about the planes from those serving our country who fly them!  My boys love planes and what a great way to learn all the cool stuff about them from the pilots!

If you will be bringing the family, you will want to take the kids to the Vecten Kids' Hanger. This is a great place to get out of the heat for a break, especially for younger kids.  Some activities include:

  • Giant Sandbox
  • Face Painting
  • Crafts
  • Backyard Gym
  • Possible Autograph Spot

Also, you will want to take your school age kids to Aerospace Adventure!  You will find hands-on activities, demonstrations along with experiments recommended for kids ages 6-16 years old.  My boys learn the best with these types of activities and I know this is a must do for our family!

General Admission Tickets are $20 for Adults, $15 for Youth (6-11) and Seniors, Kids 5 and under are Free and can be purchased here. However, save $3 per ticket with your Kroger Plus Card by purchasing them at any Dayton Area Kroger stores.

If you are taking the whole family, you may want to consider the Family 4-Pack option for only $74.95 (a 30% Savings) and must be purchased before noon on 7/6/2012.  This package includes the following:

  • 4 General Admission Tickets
  • 4 Hot Dogs
  • 4 Pepsis
  • 1 General Admission Parking Pass (package purchased prior to 7/1/2012)
  • 1 Air Show Souvenir Program

I love this option because you are saving money and getting vouchers for a cold beverage and a hot dog.  Not to mention, the souvenir program which is the first thing my boys beg for at any event we attend.

    We’d love to see any of the heritage/historical flights — we are big history buffs in our household and just watched “Red Tails” the other night. Excited to live close enough (Huber Heights) that this is a short hop for us to go.

    My family loves all of the planes. I especially enjoy the excitement on my Daughters face and how her eyes light up when the planes fly over. Hoping to see that joy again and hopefully see it reflected in her Brothers eyes for his first trip to the Air Show.

  • Hollee Stanton - June 20, 2012 @ 2:33 pm

    We love the airshow and support it faithfully every year! It is so easy to watch the show by parking in Vandalia or Tipp City, but we purchase tickets because we know if we don’t support the Vectren Dayton Airshow financially, they could stop having it.

    I would really love to take my children to see the show, we seen it several years ago, and a plane went down while we were there. I don’t want to be that to be the way they remember the airshow.

  • Windy - June 24, 2012 @ 3:24 pm

    I’ve never been to the air show. I would love to go. As far as performance I most look forward to, I’m torn between seeing the Sea Harrier, or the NASA exhibit and meeting the NASA astronaut.
