The USAF F-22 Raptor, the GEICO Skytypers and country music legend The Charlie Daniels Band will headline the 2015 Wings Over North Georgia airshow and Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic Oct. 3-4 at Rome’s Russell Regional Airport (KRMG).
Last year’s airshow featuring the USAF Thunderbirds attracted more than 75,000 airshow attendees, resulting in a North Georgia economic impact exceeding $5.3 million, according to officials with JLC Airshow Management.
“We delayed announcing the full airshow details until our headliners were all confirmed. We’re positive our fans throughout the North Georgia region will be very excited to learn the F-22 Raptor, along with the Charlie Daniels Band, will be performing at our fall event,” says John Cowman, AirShow president. “We’re also featuring the return of the GEICO Skytypers World War II era formation team and a host of other world-class aerobatic and warbird demonstrations.”
The Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic competition provides a cash purse and awards package exceeding $25,000.
