Welcome to the 2023 Tinker Air Show!

Welcome to home of the award-winning Tinker Air Show! After four long years, we're back and can't wait to amaze you! Headlining this year's show are the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, but that's not all! We'll have dozens of military and civilian aerial performers in addition to a wide variety of ground display aircraft. The theme for this year's show is "STEM Takes Flight," highlighting the science, technology, engineering and mathematics that make human flight possible! We're adding performers, ground displays and exhibits all the time, so check back often for the latest updates. You can also get Tinker Air Show updates by following the Tinker Air Force Base social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

How To Get Here: As you approach Tinker Air Force Base from Interstate 40 or I-240, look for signs directing you to the entrance. Parking and shuttles from the parking areas are free. Buses will run continuously on Saturday and Sunday beginning at 8 a.m. An average bus trip will be less than 15 minutes and will deliver passengers to the security checkpoint. All visitors should be prepared for inspection of belongings as you are entering a military installation.

Driving from the west side of the base to the east side will be restricted.

Public Entry Points/Parking: On the south end of installation, the public will be able to enter the parking area south of Bldg. 9001 (the old General Motors Plant off of SE 74th Street) through the Piazza Gate. On the east side, Hruskocy and Lancer Gates will be open for public entry into parking lots north and east of Bldg. 3001. See the below parking map for details.

Guests with wheelchairs, strollers or wagons are highly encouraged to enter through the Hruskocy or Lancer Gates to mitigate excessive time spent loading/unloading buses.

Drivers should have their licenses available for the gate guards as they approach the gates. Seatbelt use is mandatory on Tinker AFB, so ensure all passengers are buckled up. Use of cell phone while driving a motor vehicle is prohibited on base; however, hands-free devices are permitted. Park vehicles in designated areas and proceed to the gated entryway or shuttle bus stop. Base security forces will send you in the right direction. All visitors will proceed through a security checkpoint either before boarding the shuttle buses or entering the event area.

Shuttles from Bldgs. 1094 and 9001 will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
