COVID-19 concerns cancel Ellsworth Air Show
RAPID CITY, S.D. — The long-awaited return of the Dakota Thunder Air Show to Ellsworth Air Force Base will have to wait a while longer.
The 28th Bomb Wing’s Public Affairs Office on Friday confirmed to NewsCenter1 that the show has been called off because of continuing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show was scheduled for July 25-26, 2020, and was to have once again featured the United States Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team.
The show was last held in 2015.
So far, the 28th Bomb Wing has not indicated when or if the air show will be rescheduled.
