Hillwood is proud to announce that for the first time, the Bell Fort Worth Alliance Air Show was awarded first place for the “Best Air Show” in the 2020 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote. This is the Alliance Air Show’s third year in a row placing in the top three for this prestigious award. 

The Air Show is a longstanding tradition at Fort Worth Alliance Airport and attracts more than 120,000 people each year. It is one of the longest-running civilian air shows in the nation. The team at Alliance Air Productions, led by director Christina Carey, organizes the show each year, and we are honored to receive this award which is a testament to their dedication and hard work.  

In addition to promoting and educating the public about aviation and the aeronautic sciences, the Alliance Air Show has dedicated itself to giving back to the community and giving each generation a taste of the history and future of aviation. Since 2006, Alliance Air Productions has proudly donated $760,000 to over 70 nonprofit organizations. 

The air show’s 30th Anniversary, featuring the renowned U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, is set for Oct. 17-18 at Fort Worth Alliance Airport.
