Do your kiddos love hot air balloons, airplanes, fireworks, carnival rides, and entertainment? This year’s Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival will have all this and more!

We are beyond excited for this year’s Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival. We are especially looking forward to this year’s feature of TORA, TORA, TORA, the Commemorative Air Force’s Re-Enactment of the Attack on Pearl Harbor.

 

Coming Soon! – Save The Dates

The W.K. Kellogg Airport will come alive with the excitement of the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival, June 29-July 4, 2017. The schedule is full of family fun, so you won’t want to miss a day.

The Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival continues to keep Battle Creek on the map for a great family fun event and is the best air show in the area, in my opinion.

At the 2017 Field of Flight, you will be able to do more than just see history…you’ll be able to relive it. Just close your eyes and relax…when you reopen them, you’ll be at Pearl Harbor on that fateful day! TORA, TORA, TORA is the Commemorative Air Force’s Re-Enactment of the Attack on Pearl Harbor. Complete with 8 Aircraft resembling Japanese aircraft of the raid (Japanese Zero, B5N Kate Torpedo Bomber & the Val Dive Bomber) and complete with 60+ Hollywood style pyrotechnical explosions (including strafes, bombs and the Wall of Fire), this is one history lesson you will never forget!

Tora, Tora, Tora Airshows will be performing with pyro during the air shows on July 2 – 4. They will practice without pyro, flying a unique performance, during the practice show on July 1.
