Range Regional Airshow Announced

Hibbing, Minnesota, June 24, 2011 – The Chisholm-Hibbing Airport Authority is thrilled to announce the 2011 Range Regional Airshow, July 22-23, at the Range Regional Airport, Hibbing. The event celebrates 80 years of providing business and leisure flights to Northeastern Minnesota, “Iron in the Sky.”

This two-day, patriotic celebration will recognize our armed service men, women and veterans with static displays and aerial demonstrations of aircraft from all generations. With a variety of musical entertainment, children’s activities, educational displays, and aerial performances, the event promises fun for all ages at the easily-accessible Range Regional Airport, located on Highway 37 in Hibbing.

“The 2011 Range Regional Airshow is the first airshow on the Iron Range in 18 years,” said Shaun Germolus, Airport Director. “With big name musical acts and high-quality air performances, the airshow promises to be this summer’s biggest event. We’re excited to be bringing an Airshow back to the Iron Range.”

The event kicks off Friday night at 6 p.m. with an adult-only evening of music by Blackfoot, Skinny Molly, and The Gear Daddies interspersed with aerial performances by the U.S. Golden Knights, Miss Mitchell, John Mohr-Brainstorming, John Klatt, and Gene Soucy and Teresa Strokes. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Saturday is family day starting with a pancake breakfast from 8-11 a.m. and the opportunity to visit educational and static aircraft displays. Children will enjoy playing in our “Kids Play Area” filled with bounce houses and activities. Starting at noon the aerial performers take to the sky, entertaining the audience with gravity-defying feats and displays of speed and grace. Don’t miss the scheduled fly-over of the B-52 Bomber slated for mid-afternoon.
