Strap in, speed lovers: The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are set to fly back to Eau Claire for the 2022 Chippewa Valley Air Show on June 4 and 5. The popular flight demonstration team will perform at the biannual air show’s next iteration following its 2020 cancellation earlier this year. (The Blue Angels were last seen in our airspace back in 2018.)
This air show – held as always at the Chippewa Valley Regional Airport in Eau Claire – will also be the Chippewa Valley’s first look at the new F/A-18E/F Super Hornets, which are replacing the squadron’s older legacy Hornets in 2021. The Blue Angels are scheduled to perform 63 demonstrations at 32 locations in 2022, a year that will mark the squadron’s 76th air show season.
The Chippewa Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America will again host the 2022 Chippewa Valley Air Show. Organizers say 100% of profits from the event help more than 60 nonprofits in our community.
“We thank our community partners and air show fans from across the region for their continued support,” said Tim Molepske of the Chippewa Valley Council. “Not being able to host this major fundraiser for the Chippewa Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America this year was difficult, and we hope we can count on everyone’s support for our event in 2022. It truly makes an impact for the thousands of Scouts who participate in our programs across western Wisconsin.”
