Please be advised that the GREAT NEW ENGLAND AIR SHOW at Westover Air Reserve Base will NOT occur this year. Because of Department of Defense budget cutbacks the military cannot support any demonstration teams or air shows anywhere for the foreseeable future. It is our sincere hope that when the economic environment improves, Congress will restore funding for all military related public events such as the Great New England Air Show.
To bridge the air show gap this year, the Galaxy Community Council is producing the first edition of Great New England Wings and Wheels at Westover Metropolitan Airport on the civilian side of Westover. On August 24th and 25th, over 25 vintage military and civilian aircraft as well as hundreds of show cars will be on display. Please refer to www.GreatNewEnglandWingsAndWheels.com regarding details.
Thank you for your interest.
Thank You for Attending The Great New England Air Show!
"A Salute to the Greatest Generation."
THANKS TO ALL OF OUR VISITORS FOR ATTENDING THE 2012 EDITION OF THE WESTOVER AIR RESERVE BASE OPEN HOUSE and GREAT NEW ENGLAND AIR SHOW ON August 3rd and 4th. In spite of the weather, this year’s program was a huge success. The aerial performers and static displays, especially those in support of our theme, “A Salute to the Greatest Generation”, made this year’s show both exciting and educational.
Special thanks also go out to our sponsors and contributors, without whom the scope of the Great New England Air Show would not be possible. Their logos are posted on this site; please make every effort to patronize their businesses.
Lastly, thanks to the military and civilian men and women at Westover Air Reserve Base for their hard work over the past eight months in producing a fantastic show.
The last air show at Westover was in 2008. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait until 2016 for the next one but we will keep you posted regarding the next air show in Western Massachusetts on www.greatnewenglandairshow.com and www.westfieldairshow.net.
