2016 air show dates announced • Richard B. Russell Regional Airport (KRMG), Rome, Georgia

The Wings Over North Georgia Air Show is set to return to the Richard B. Russell Regional Airport in 2016.

John Cowman with JLC Airshow Management shared the news during Tuesday’s Airport Commission meeting.

“We’ve got our show dates for next year.  They are October 29 and 30,” he said. “One December 7, at some point that afternoon, we will send out a press release announcing what our plans are for next year. I’m excited about it already.”

The 2015 show was marred by heavy rains, which grounded the planes on that Saturday.

“Everybody leaned forward on Sunday and we got the full show in, and that was a challenge,” Cowman added. “The one shining penny for the weekend was the barbecue classic. We got nothing but super rave reviews about it.”

Cowman said it was a difficult decision cancelling one day of the show but, in the end, safety won out.

Airport Manager Mike Matthews said he is still working on the final financial numbers regarding fuel sales from this year’s air show.
