The 2022 Aviation Roundup featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels graced the skies above the Minden-Tahoe Airport Saturday and will return again today, Sunday. Catch the awe-inspiring thrills of some of the world’s top aviation performers as they buzz, soar and perform aerobatic feats above the tarmac.

The event brings some of the world’s best-known airshow performers and military jet demonstration teams as well as local and regional industry vendors exhibiting the newest innovations and technologies available to the aviation industry.

World-class aviation performers including Bill Stein, The Chuters, Kirby Chambliss and the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will again perform wild stunts, elegant formations and twists and turns for the crowds below.

The mission of the Blue Angels is to “showcase the teamwork and professionalism of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps through flight demonstrations and community outreach while inspiring a culture of excellence and service to the country,” according to Aviation Roundup organizers.

The Chuters — a veterans-centric parachute demonstration team — will take to the skies again Sunday with parachutes and colored smoke for a dazzling show. In addition to the Blue Angels, aeronautic acrobatic Bill Stein will wow in his performance. Bill has logged over 5,000 hours of aerobatic and formation flight.

Keep an eye out for Greg Koontz and the Alabama Boys, who will perform traditional flying circus classics courtesy of Koontz’s time in Col. Moser’s Flying Circus.
