Welcome Attendees!

We are excited to bring together world-class performers, competitors and special guests from across our great nation to participate in the third annual 2014 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.

After a successful inaugural 2012 event featuring the Canadian Forces Snowbirds followed in 2013 featuring the Black Diamond Jet Team, it’s our pleasure to welcome an outstanding 2014 line-up of world-class performers headlining the USAF THUNDERBIRDS & GEICO SKYTPERS Demonstration Teams. Air Shows and BBQ competitions are excellent community events where our performers and competitors can directly interact with the guests, community organizations, businesses and sponsors while promoting a feeling of pride through partnerships within the community.  Such 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.

As each of you enjoy these new relationships and participate in the 2014 Wings Over North Georgia weekend, it is important for everyone to have fun; but keeping safety at the forefront as we highlight these professional talents and host the tens of thousands of attending guests.

We have assembled a top-notch staff of professionals and volunteers to run this community event.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any of our knowledgeable personnel for assistance.  Please remember to recognize and thank our volunteers, sponsors and community supporters who stepped-up to make this Air Show and BBQ Classic a reality.

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 2014 Wings Over North Georgia air show & BBQ Classic will continue to grow and remain the number one economic impact community family event in Rome-Floyd County & North Georgia!
