The 2024 Oregon International Air Show will take place from Friday to Sunday at the Hillsboro Municipal Airport. This year’s event will feature the U.S. Air Force F-16 Viper and the U.S. Navy F/A-18 Rhino demonstration teams. On Friday night, attendees can look forward to an exciting lineup, including a new drone show and flyovers with sparks and fireworks.

Lt. Caleb Smith with the U.S. Navy Rhino Demo Team, says the F/A-18 has a strong presence in Hollywood films, such as Top Gun: Maverick.

Capt. Taylor Hiester, the F-16 Demo Team Commander says “The first airshow I attended was in 2003 and I’ll never forget seeing a fighter jet fly for the 1st time…Our goal is to inspire both young Americans and old Americans to serve their community…our team is designed to be an example of what it looks like when a small group of people give everything they have for something bigger than themselves.
