Dear Sponsors, Vendors, Volunteers, and Supporters of the Waukegan Airshow,
It is with a heavy heart that I regret to inform you that the board of directors of the Waukegan Airshow has decided to cancel Wings Over Waukegan that was scheduled to take place this year on September 12 and 13 at the Waukegan Airport. This cancellation is due to the fact that we were unable to meet our financial obligations to allow us to move forward and successfully produce a safe and enjoyable show this year. This was compounded by the fact that there were certain logistical issues related to relocating some neighbors that border the airport that live in the FAA mandated flight box that we were unable to overcome. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you, and I thank each and every one of you for your hard work and extra-effort to help create this one-of-a-kind experience in our community, and I look forward to seeing all of you as we prepare for a re-tooled show on September 10, 2016.
Grant B. Farrell
President and Airshow director
Waukegan Regional Airshow, Inc.
