Award-Winning Air Show Becomes North Texas’ First Drive-In Experience

Alliance Aviation Services’ largest event of the year, The Bell Fort Worth Alliance Air Show at Fort Worth – Alliance Airport, was recently awarded first place for the “Best Air Show” in the 2020 USA TODAY 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards! Alliance Air Show, for the third year in a row, has placed in the top three for this prestigious award.

This year’s show, set for Oct. 17-18, marks the 30th Anniversary and will be in the form of a drive-in experience, making it North Texas’ first drive-in air show. The air show is one of the largest, longest-running, and most successful civilian air shows in the nation and attracts more than 120,000 people each year.

With health and safety as the top priority, social distancing standards, and additional protocols will be in place. Each vehicle will be appropriately separated – with one space for the vehicle and the adjacent area for guests to sit safely and picnic. Guests will still be able to photograph, see, and feel the heart-thumping roar of the world-renowned U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and other best-in-class performers.

Critical Safety Information:

  • Those who have had COVID-19 symptoms or had close contact with someone who has had COVID-19 symptoms within the past 14 days should remain at home.
  • All gests will be required to wear masks for the entirety of the event.
  • Open flames, grills, pop-up tents, RVs, trailers, and smoking will not be allowed.
  • Ample restrooms and hand wash stations will be onsite.

In addition to promoting and educating the public about aviation and the aeronautic sciences, the Bell Fort Worth Alliance Air Show has dedicated itself to giving back to the community and giving each generation a taste of aviation’s history and future. Proceeds from the air show have been proudly donated to over 70 nonprofit organizations totaling $760,000 since 2006.
