Tour – USA – Selfridge ANGB – Dover AFB – North East – August 2017 – 4Aviation

Tour - USA II

Selfridge & Dover shows – Eclipse – North East – August 2017


For August 2017 two interesting air shows are scheduled in the USA; at Selfridge ANGB (19 and 20 August) and at Dover AFB (26 and 27 August). In the week in between we can visit a number of interesting bases in the North-East of the USA.

A coincidence is that a total solar eclipe will take place in the USA on 21 August ( We will not travel to the area where the total eclipse can be seen, but we will experience some of it.

We are convinced that with this we are offering a very interesting tour to the USA again, heading for an area we do not visit regularly!

The itinerary that follows is to be considered as preliminary.

We have decided not to travel the area of the total Eclipse (on 21 August). It appeared to be very unpractical to usefully include this in a schedule. Taking this into account we are anticipating a smaller group during a relatively expensive time of year. The tour has therefore become more expensive when compared to other USA tours.

On Friday 18 August we will fly to the USA and return to the Netherlands on Monday 28 August 2017.

The plan at this moment is as follows:

  • Friday 18 August 2017: fly to Detroit
  • Saturday 19 August 2017: visit show Selfridge ANGB
  • Sunday 20 August 2017: visit show Selfridge ANGB and/or museum in the area
  • Monday 21 August 2017: Toledo Express (OH F-16s) from outside
  • Tuesday 22 August 2017: Grissom AFB (KC-135s) and Ft Wayne (IN A-10s) from outside
  • Wednesday 23 August 2017: Wright Patterson AFB museum and Rickenbacker AFB (KC-135s) from outside
  • Thursday 24 August 2017: Pittsburgh AFB (KC-135s) from outside and wrecks & relics / museums
  • Friday 25 August 2017: Muir AAF (Army choppers) and Baltimore (MD A-10s) from outside
  • Saturday 26 August 2017: visit show Dover AFB
