The 2020 OC Air Show has been rescheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 15 and 16, over the beach and boardwalk of Ocean City, Md.

The U.S. Air Force has scheduled the F-22 Raptor, F-35 Lighting II and A-10 Thunderbolt II demonstration teams to perform at the event.

"This will be the one of the first times aviation fans can see a demonstration of the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lighting II stealth fighters at the same event," said Bryan Lilley, OC Air Show chairman. "We are also eagerly anticipating the release of the Thunderbirds' updated schedule, and we're hopeful they will be performing as well."

Originally scheduled for the second weekend of June, the show was postponed due to COVID-19. Show officials will be working with the Town of Ocean City to implement a series of Stay Safe and Separate initiatives to help ensure the safety of spectators at the rescheduled August event.
