The 2020 Wings over Whiteman Air and Space Show will be held on Saturday June 13 and Sunday June 14 at Whiteman Air Force Base. The headliner of the show will be the F-35 Lightening II demonstration team.

In 2020 the F-35 Lightening II demonstration team will be based out of Hill Air Force Base in northern Utah just south of Ogden. The F-35A Lightening II Demo Team hopes to inspire people to join the military, or do something amazing in their own lives with their air show performances and interactions with the public.

As for the F-35A aircraft, it's mission according to the air force is to serve as the replacement "for  the U.S. Air Force’s aging fleet of F-16 Fighting Falcons and A-10 Thunderbolt II’s, which have been the primary fighter aircraft for more than 20 years, and bring with it an enhanced capability to survive in the advanced threat environment in which it was designed to operate. With its aerodynamic performance and advanced integrated avionics, the F-35A will provide next-generation stealth, enhanced situational awareness, and reduced vulnerability for the United States and allied nations."

The Facebook event created for Wings Over Whiteman encourages people to watch the official WIngs Over Whiteman Facebook page for more details about the show.
