Due to budget cuts, not all of the same Air Force jets will be at HAPO's "Over the River" air show. Here's what organizers have lined up to replace them:

  • The Supermarine Spitfire from the Historic Flight.  One of the planes that made the Rolls-Royce Merlin famous before it powered a generation of Thunderboats.
  • The Alpha Jet - From Mustang High Flight LLC. European light attack jet and trainer.  Most notably used by the French Air Force jet team Patrouille Acrobatique de France
  • Red Eagle Airshows  -  Internationally-renowned, two-ship formation aerobatic team fling the Talon Eagle Bi-plane.
  • Will Allen Airshows - Known as the “flying tenor” for his unique national anthem performances, although he will only be flying at this year’s event, not singing.
  • U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight – Featuring 2 P-51 Mustangs
