The first air show in more than a decade is coming to Myrtle Beach this April, according to a news release on behalf of JLC Air Show Management.

The Wings Over Myrtle Beach Air Show will be hosted April 28-29 at the Myrtle Beach International Airport, the release said.

“The opportunity to bring an air show back to Myrtle Beach, SC is fantastic news and should be an exciting community event. The format of the air show, with the Blue Angels as the headliner, embraces the rich military heritage of our community," said Scott Van Moppes, director of airports, in the release.

The Blue Angels, who will perform in their six signature gold-and-blue F-18 Hornets, are known for their hard-charging demonstration of precision formation flying while pushing their aircraft to their limit.

“We are thrilled to help bring an air show back to Myrtle Beach,” said Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. “We always welcome effective partnerships, in this case with Horry County, the Myrtle Beach International Airport, JLC Airshow Management, and of course the many talented performers. This is another great attraction for tourists to enjoy in our area during the spring season.”

John Cowman, JLC AirShow Management President, said the company is excited to "host an air show on the same runways previously utilized by the U.S. Air Force. The news of the Blue Angels participation sets our plans in motion to deliver exactly what we intended and has exceeded our expectations for the first annual event.”

Other performers and artists will be unveiled soon, the release said.

In mid-December, advance tickets, sponsor, and exhibitor information will be available at
