HARRISON TOWNSHIP — The U.S. Air Force demonstration team will highlight the Selfridge 2022 Open House and Air Show.

The Dec. 7 announcement came from the International Council of Air Show Convention in Las Vegas.

The Selfridge Air Show is scheduled for July 9-10 and will feature the Air Combat Command F-22 Demonstration Team. 

“The F-22 team performs precision aerial maneuvers to demonstrate the unique capabilities of the U.S. Air Force fifth-generation fighter aircraft,” a press release states.

The free event will also include the 127th Wing’s KC-135 Stratotanker, the A-10 Thunderbolt II, warbirds, and air and ground static displays dating as far back as World War I. 

“This air show is our way of opening our doors to the general public so that they can get a glimpse behind the gates as to what we do here at Selfridge,” said Brig. Gen. Rolf Mammen, 127th Wing and Selfridge Air National Guard Base Commander. “This is an opportunity for our southeast Michigan communities to interact with the airmen who execute the 127th Wing’s missions, supporting our local communities and combatant commanders with global vigilance, reach and power.” 

The base last hosted an air show in 2017 featuring the U.S. Air Force Thunderbird to crowds in excess of 300,000. The 2020 air show, which was originally scheduled for June 6-7, 2020, was canceled due to COVID-19.

The full schedule of aerial performers and ground displays is still being developed and will be posted at 127wg.ang.af.mil. All performers and aircraft are subject to change without notice.
