CHESTERFIELD, Mo., Dec. 8, 2020 – The Spirit of St. Louis Air Show & STEM Expo will return to the Spirit of St. Louis Airport in June 2022 and will be headlined by the US Navy Blue Angels in their made-in-Missouri Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornets.

“The US Navy Blue Angels are the epitome of excellence and teamwork, and their displays never fail to wow audiences everywhere,” said John Bales, President of the Spirit of St. Louis Air Show committee and Spirit of St. Louis Airport Director. “This will be the first time the team will perform here in the Super Hornets and we are excited to have them as our headliners in 2022 as we celebrate Missouri innovation, inspire students towards careers in STEM, and thrill our guests with amazing performances from historic and modern aviation.”

Additional performers will be announced in 2021 and 2022.

The 2022 Spirit of St. Louis Air Show & STEM Expo is scheduled for June 11-12 at the Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield. Previous air shows have been held there in 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2019.

All tickets will be sold online only.  Check out the website for details and updates on when tickets will be available.

“The return of the non-socially-distanced Blue Angels flying just 18 inches apart, combined with other amazing aviators, will make this event one of the top regional events in 2022,” said Bales. “We look forward to hosting all our guests in a safe and healthy environment and bringing them memories they will talk about for a lifetime.”
