Welcome Attendees!

We are very excited to bring together another group of world-class performers, competitors and special guests from across our great nation to participate in the fourth annual 2015 Wings Over North Georgia Air Show, Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic and General Aviation Fly-In.  On behalf of the Russell Regional Airport, Floyd County and City of Rome; JLC AirShow Management is honored to be your official host.

2015 WONG Poster (12x18)After another outstanding 2014 event headlining the USAF Thunderbirds; it’s our pleasure to welcome our 2015 performer line-up headlining the USAF F-22 Raptor Demo Team, GEICO Skytypers Flight Demonstration Team plus America’s Treasure & Country Music’s Legend “The Charlie Daniels Band.”  Air Shows and BBQ’s are excellent community events where performers, competitors and special guests can directly interact with the fans, community organizations, businesses and sponsors while promoting a feeling of pride through partnerships within the community.  An endeavor this large requires a total team effort and that is why building partnerships is such a critical component for this event to be successful.

We have assembled a top-notch staff of professionals and volunteers to execute this world-class regional event in Rome, Georgia.  We have addressed with the local authorities the challenges our fans experienced last year on Saturday with the traffic flow, airport parking and shuttle bus shortfalls.  We believe these issues are now corrected and this year’s event will go much smoother as our fans travel to and from the show on Saturday & Sunday!

New for 2015 — We have expanded the BBQ Classic to become the first ever “DOUBLE COMPETITION” in Georgia.  There will be a new entry area information booth for our fans to get current show information; better understand the daily schedule and locations of the key displays, attractions and the various seating options.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any of our knowledgeable personnel for assistance.

As each of you enjoy these new relationships and participate in the 2015 Wings Over North Georgia Airshow and BBQ Classic “Double” weekend, it is important for everyone to have fun; but keeping safety at the forefront as we highlight all these professional talents while hosting the tens of thousands of attending fans.

Please remember to recognize and thank our volunteers, sponsors and community supporters who stepped-up to make this airshow weekend a reality. You can keep up to date by following the current news posted on our website, facebook and twitter accounts. Take some time and signup at the website home page to receive regular email news and special offers.

We look forward to seeing each of you in action at this year’s event. Based on all the great preparation and planning, we are confident the 2015 Wings Over North Georgia Airshow & BBQ Classic will continue to prosper and remain the number one family and economic event in Rome-Floyd County & North Georgia!
