Warbirds Over Delaware

Thank you for your interest in Warbirds Over Delaware.

Warbirds Over Delaware runs from Wednesday through Sunday. The pilots start to arrive and setup their displays and RV's starting on Wednesday. Friday and Saturday are our big days for spectators. On these days, most of the pilots will be in attendance. Sunday is a transistion day where most of the pilots and vendors have packed up and left the event. We do not recommend Sunday for spectators.

There is no formal schedule of events, with the exception of "Half Time" shows on Friday and Saturday starting around 12:00 Noon. During the Half Time show, special aerial fly-by's, grouped by historical time periods, are performed. Starting with a sky filled with WWI aircraft, then WWII fighters and bombers, to modern day turbine jet fighters.
