The Greater Binghamton Airshow Makes a Comeback, Pandemic-Style
The Greater Binghamton Airshow returns, pandemic-style to the airport this summer.
The July 17 and 18 airshow presented by Tioga Downs Casnio Resort will be a drive-in event.
Broome County Executive Jason Garnar praised the planning team for its creativity in putting together an air show with COVID-19 pandemic precautions in mind.
The 2021 Air Show will feature the United States Airforce Thunderbirds’ Lockheed F16CJ Fighting Falcon aircraft. The unit last performed in Broome County in 2004.
The large space at the Greater Binghamton Airport with numerous possibilities for parking spots adequately spaced out to view the aerial performances between noon and 4 p.m. each day are being blocked out while plans for things like food vendors remain “up in the air.”
Air Show opening and performer information will be released on the air show website: www.flybgm.com
