2017 Reno Air Races

September 10, 2017

The 54th Annual Reno National Championship Air Races will be flying over Reno Stead Field from Wednesday, September 13, through Sunday, September 17, 2017.

The air show part of the event consists of performances by multiple aeronautical aces. There is always a headliner, which will be the Texas Flying Legends Museum at the 2017 Reno Air Races. Past performers have included the USAF Thunderbirds, U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. Another special feature will be the U.S. Air Force’s A-10 Heritage Flight Team. Air show performances occur during times between races.

Down on the tarmac, there will be displays of powerful military aircraft currently in service (some open for tours) and lots of beautifully restored historic flying machines. Vendors and exhibitors throughout the grounds will offer a wide variety of food, drink, and merchandise.

Be sure to read through my “2017 Reno Air Races” article for information about the show and races, getting to Reno Stead Airport, parking, and other useful information for enjoying the event as a spectator. To save a few bucks, try going during the first couple of days of the event – ticket prices increase daily, topping out on Sunday for the air racing finals.
