US Air Force F-35, F-22, F-16 and A-10 solo demonstration schedules for 2023

2023 schedules for the US Air Force’s four Air Combat Command demonstration teams have been released as part of the International Council of Air Shows Convention in Las Vegas. As has become normal in recent years, ACC will be displaying four aircraft types: the A-10C Thunderbolt II, F-16CM Fighting Falcon, F-22A Raptor and F-35A Lightning II. The F-35 will be particularly busy this year, with a large number of shows both in North America and across Europe.

This an early version of the schedule; minor updates (especially regarding airshows outside North America) can be expected throughout the year. The majority of shows listed will include a solo demonstration and a Heritage Flight, unless listed either as “Demo Only” or “HF Only”. Warbirds featuring in the Heritage Flights have not yet been confirmed, but commonly-used types include AD-1 Skyraider, P-47 Thunderbolt, P-38 Lightning, F-86 Sabre, and – more frequently – the P-51 Mustang.
