COLUMBUS, GAThunder in the Valley Air Show has announced that advanced tickets to the March 17 and 18 event are now available for sale; and for the first time, tickets can be purchased online.

"We are very pleased to be able to partner with AttendStar to offer the convenience of online ticket sales," said Phaedra Childers, Event Coordinator.  "Our Facebook friends and others who come in from out of town have asked for online ticket sales for a few years, and now we can meet that need."

A link to online ticket sales can be found on the Thunder in the Valley Air Show website (www.ThunderintheValleyAirShow.com) or by scanning the QR Code found in ads and posters promoting the air show.

Advance tickets purchased online cost $8, plus a $1.27 service fee.  All major credit cards are accepted.

Advanced tickets are also available through many local businesses for $8, including:

  • Columbus-area McDonald's
  • Cricket Communications
  • MWR Tickets and Travel (Fort Benning)

  • Skyline Columbus (at Columbus Airport)
  • Off Price Furniture – Armor Road at Manchester Expressway

Advanced tickets at local merchants are cash only. Active-duty military personnel can purchase advanced tickets for only $6 at MWR Tickets and Travel on Fort Benning. Children six and under are always free.  It's important to note that tickets are good for only one of the two show days – to attend both days would require two tickets – and that there are no rain dates or refunds.

Advanced tickets will be available until close of business on Friday, March 16.  Day-of-event tickets are only $10 ($8 for active-duty military).

 
Something for Everyone

Childers explained that this year's show – themed "Extreme Thunder" – will present a wide array of aerial and ground entertainment. "For our fifteenth year, we will have something for everyone in the family, from advanced military demonstrations by the Navy F-18 Tac Demo Team and the Marines V-22 Osprey Demo Team, to Gary Ward and Greg Connell's breathtaking aerobatics, to static displays of aircraft and vehicles our guests can see and touch."  There will be aircraft and helicopter rides, as well as simulators, to give attendees the chance to add to the experience.

"We have elected not to raise ticket prices, despite the increased cost of producing the show," Childers explained.  "So in addition to being ‘Extreme Thunder,' this year we are an ‘Extreme Value' as well."

Gates will open at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. on both Saturday, March 17 and Sunday, March 18.
