Two big additions to the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024 lineup were confirmed in the past week, as the Canadian Armed Forces SkyHawks skydiving team and the U.S. Air Force A-10 Demo Team committed to performances during The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.

The SkyHawks will attend as part of the 100th anniversary commemoration for the Royal Canadian Air Force. The SkyHawks are Canada’s only military parachute demonstration team, comprised of 13 jumpers from the Canadian Army, the Royal Canadian Navy, and the Royal Canadian Air Force. This includes both Regular Force and Reserve members with diverse professional backgrounds. They will perform during the afternoon air shows at Oshkosh.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Air Force’s A-10 Demo Team — marking its final season of air show performances — will be at Oshkosh on July 22-25. The Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, affectionately known as the Warthog, has long been a favorite on the air show circuit. The demo team is based at Davis-Monthan AFB and commanded by Maj. Lindsay “MAD” Johnson, who flies the aircraft at air shows throughout the country.
