Oregon Air Show to Feature F-22

Mar 06, 2014 No Comments by

Less than a week after learning that the Canadian Forces Snowbirds reconfirmed as the headline performers for The Oregon International Air Show presented by Standard TV & Appliance, the show announced an impressive contingent of U.S. military demonstrations have been added to the 2014 show lineup.

The Show, scheduled for Sept. 19-21, 2014, at Oregon’s Hillsboro Airport, was forced to take to the skies in 2013 with no military performers due to budget cuts forced by the federal budget sequestration.

Leading the list of U.S. military performers is the U.S. Air Force Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor, which will be making its first-ever appearance in Oregon.  The Raptor is the world’s most advanced fighter aircraft and one of the most sought-after demonstrations on the air show circuit.  Its incredible maneuverability, aided by its computerized controls and powerful, thrust-vectoring jet engines, make the Raptor an astonishing air show aircraft.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
