Wings Over Wayne Air Show | Overview 

Nearly 200,000 people from around the world attend this exciting two-day event, making it the largest free air show in North Carolina and part of the community’s legacy. The event started out as a tool for military recruitment and local economic impact, but it has evolved into much more. The recruitment and economic impact remain at the event’s core, but WOW has reached goals that were never thought possible. The Wings Over Wayne Air Show has become a family tradition for folks around the globe. Children experience the thrill of fighter jets for the first time and adults rekindle their childlike excitement as they witness air and ground displays. The event unites people from different generations and backgrounds by calling on the common patriotic seams that bond us all – a blend of excitement, humbleness, and nostalgia. Military communities are known for supporting their bases, but the Wings Over Wayne Air Show and Seymour Johnson AFB breaks the mold and gives back to Goldsboro and the state of North Carolina in ways that can’t be measured.
