“Our goal is to make each AirFest bigger and uniquely better than the last so it remains the premier family-friendly event for the entire region, and the AirFest 2011 lineup does just that!” said Bob O’Brien, executive director of Chicago Rockford International Airport. “With the Blue Angels returning for the first time since 2007, and a great mix of other acts, this is bound to be an exciting show for the tens of thousands in attendance.”
AirFest 2011 is also expected to feature more than 30 static aircraft on display. One of the special things about AirFest is that attendees can walk up to – sometimes step inside of – a wide range of military, commercial and civilian aircraft. AirFest 2011 will also include children’s activities, concessions and other fun things to see and do.
