2021 Airshow Action mini-series released by AirshowStuff and This is Flight

This is Flight, in partnership with our friends at AirshowStuff, have collaborated once again on an Airshow Action mini-series, capturing the very best airshow moments from around the world in 2021.

The two episodes, running for an hour each, focus on one-off performances, debuts, tours and unique displays that made 2021 stand out from any other year. The series was recorded at dozens of events in the USA, UK, Canada, France, Australia and Poland. The first episode features military aircraft, while the second features vintage aircraft and warbirds.


  • The Blue Angels’ new F/A-18F Super Hornets and C-130J Hercules
  • The first ever Polish C-130E air display – including a massive flare dump

  • A four-ship USAF Heritage Flight at AirVenture (P-38/P-51/P-51/F-16)
