HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Air Power Over Hampton Roads is gearing up for a comeback.
Officials from Joint Base Langley-Eustis say the air show is tentatively set for May 5 – 7, 2023.
Although they are still in the early stages of planning, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and JBLE’s own F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team are confirmed to attend.
“It’s an honor to be such an integral part of this community and we’re extremely excited to come together and give back to Hampton Roads! We look forward to showcasing some incredible acts, STEM booths, food, fun and more,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Gregory Beaulieu, JBLE installation commander.
“It’s been a rough couple of years for all of us, and this is a great opportunity to celebrate with our neighbors and enjoy some amazing displays of Air Power!”
JBLE plans to host a community-wide competition for the next APoHR logo.
This contest is open to all members of the Hampton Roads community. The winning APoHR logo will be used to advertise the air show across JBLE and Department of Defense social media platforms leading up to the APoHR 2023. The logo will also be placed on merchandise and marketing material throughout the event.
The winner will be recognized on all JBLE official social media platforms and will receive a challenge coin presented by the JBLE Installation Commander.
