2024 Fiesta of Flight

March 9th

Mark your calendars and get ready to experience Laughlin Air Force Base's "Fiesta of Flight" Open House, Airshow and STEAM Expo.

After a six year airshow hiatus, this event expects a crowd of over 10,000 attendees.

Fiesta of Flight promises to be a memorable demonstration of our United States air power and is a family friendly event for the Del Rio community and surrounding cities. Fiesta of Flight will feature a car show, food vendors, merchandise booths, activities for children and a STEAM Expo, showcasing aspects of science, technology, art, engineering, and math for the youth to explore.

Fiesta of Flight will be a fantastic event for aviation enthusiasts, aspiring pilots, history buffs, or everyday people that want to witness some incredible aerial displays and get an inside look into our mission to build combat ready Airmen, leaders and pilots.

The event's headlining act will be the F-35A Lightning II Demo Team! The F-35A is the U.S. Air Force’s newest fifth-generation fighter. The Lightning II is a stealthy, multirole, all-weather air-to-air and surface attack fighter.

A confirmed list of acts and static displays will be released on a later date.

Laughlin is one of the busiest U.S. Air Force pilot training bases, graduating more than 400 pilots in fiscal year 2023. This event will give the public a chance to see Team XL’s mission up close.

We hope to inspire the next generation of pilots, engineers, and mechanics through this excellent opportunity!
