“We’ve discussed it with them, we hope to have this become an annual event and right now we have for next year’s show… we’ve already got the United States Thunderbirds scheduled for the first weekend in May and then we got some other surprises for the show for next year. But, we’ll get through this show and make sure everyone’s happy… both on the community side, the airport side, and our side, and we’ll try to get everything ready back into a normal rotation of an annual airshow here,” said Cowman.
Cowman said it usually takes 18 months to build an event of this size, but with his team's experience, this show in particular took only four months.
He said this was a natural good deal because Myrtle Beach is a great destination location and also because it has such a rich history in the U.S. Air Force.
As an Air Force Veteran himself, Cowman had already scoped out the area. So, when the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce reached out, he said plans formed together fast.
