The 2018 Spirit of St. Louis Air Show will feature the Canadian CF-18 Hornet demo team as well as the U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon demonstration.
Taking place Oct. 13-14 on the grounds of Spirit of St. Louis Airport in the Chesterfield Valley, the show also will feature Skip Stewart in his aerobatic biplane and a Boeing B-29 Superfortress named “Doc.”
The show will coincide with a STEM Expo geared toward kids of all ages.
“2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the F/A-18 Hornet’s first flight,” said John Bales, president of the Spirit of St. Louis Air Show committee and Spirit of St. Louis Airport director. “2018 also will kick off two consecutive years of airshows in St. Louis, celebrating these made-in-St. Louis aircraft, while also thrilling attendees with phenomenal performances from other historic and modern aircraft.”
