Joint Base Charleston is excited to announce the return of our Air Expo, scheduled for April 18-19, 2020! This much-anticipated event is free to the public and showcases two full days of world-class aerial aerobatics including the Blue Angels and a C-17 Globemaster III demonstration. Join us as we give the Charleston community an unforgettable, up close and personal experience with our aircraft and the outstanding men and women who wear the uniform. Our team is thrilled to bring this incredible event back to the Lowcountry as our way of saying thank you -- to our friends and neighbors from across the greater Charleston region -- for the incredible support you all provide to our military members and their families. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay connected with the most up-to-date information regarding this exciting event!
