JLC’s inaugural air show took place in 2012 during the Wings Over North Georgia Air Show featuring the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet Jet Demonstration Teams. The annual event has hosted world class teams including performances by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, U.S. Navy Blue Angels, U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor, U.S. Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey, U.S. Air Force A-10 Warthog, Black Diamond Jet Team, Aeroshell, and the world’s top-rated civilian solo aerobatic performers. The initial air show contributed an economic impact of $2.6 million to Rome, GA and grew to more than $7 million in 2017.
U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. (retired) John Cowman and his elite team of retired veterans and aviation enthusiasts host multiple world-class events and seek to promote and support the U.S. Armed Forces and veteran organizations.
