Will there be a Planes Of Thunder Static Display this year? Due to increased security on military bases across the country and active deployment, the Planes of Thunder Static display will not be held.

What accommodations are made for the physically challenged? The entire event area is accessible and there are no designated viewing areas. Handicap parking is available in all area PARC garages, near the Kennedy Bridge in Jeffersonville and near the Falls of the Ohio Interpretive Center in Clarksville. All is available on a first-come/first served basis.

Is First Aid available? Naturally, with an event of this size, first aid and safety looms large in the planning.

Nearly 80 Red Cross/EMS personnel will man these positions beginning at 2:00 PM until the conclusion of the event.
