SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE. – As a result of the uncertainty and disruptions caused by COVID-19, Scott Air Force Base officials announced Friday that they have decided to cancel its 2020 Air Show & Open House, which was set for May 30-31, featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.
“We took our time to carefully consider all the impacts, and this is the best decision in consideration of these uncertain times and our current focus on COVID-19 response efforts,” said Col. Joseph Meyer, 375th Air Mobility Wing vice commander. “The health and safety of our personnel and of the public is of the greatest importance. When operations return to normal we will definitely look for another opportunity in the future to host an air show.”
The Air Force suspended public outreach activities and support to community events in the United States and at its overseas locations through May 15, 2020, including on base and civilian-sponsored air shows. A future date for the Scott’s next Open House & Air Show is to be determined.
