The Kansas City Air Show is a wildly popular air show with Midwest audiences that takes place in Kansas City MO at the Wheeler Downtown Airport.

Officially known as the KC Aviation & Airshow, it traditionally kicks off each summer in late August.

Due to sequestration and government budget cuts, the Kansas City Air Show was cancelled in 2013. Reorganizing in 2014, the next Kansas City Air Show was rescheduled for 2015.

That year, the US Navy Blue Angels -- along with a lineup of other military and civilian performers -- wowed crowds of thousands who had attended.

Alas, this year there are no plans to re-up the show and according to the Kansas City Airshow Facebook page no plans are currently in the offing for 2017.

Like most big events, the Kansas City Air Show has a number of attractions and features on the ground that make it an entertaining way to spend the day — but the real attraction is, of course, the planes!

In the past, the Kansas City Air Show has featured a wide variety of flying entertainment, including thunderous appearances by the US Navy Blue Angels and the US Air Force Thunderbirds, along with mock dog fights between planes, and aerobatic stunt men with highly modified planes capable of stunning maneuvers.

There have also been some air entertainment acts that are a little more unconventional. Past shows, for instance, have featured an elite parachute team from the United States Army, as well as some flightless jet powered vehicles. Paul Strender, a former racing mechanic, put together a jet powered port-o-potty and a jet powered school bus!

Kansas City Air Show tickets and parking info

Tickets to the Kansas City Air Show traditionally range from $15 to $40. It's usually much cheaper if you purchase tickets early rather than on show days at the gate. Kids 15 years of age or younger are typically admitted free if accompanied by an adult.

Parking at the air show grounds is also quite limited, so air show organizers encourage people to take advantage of park and ride shuttle bus transit services, which deliver people directly to the front gates. Air show North buses pick-up and return to Briarcliff Village. South buses pick up at Union Station and at designated stops on Grand Blvd.
