Thunder Over the Sound

The 2023 Thunder over the Sound Air & Space Show theme is “Heritage and Honor“– calling back to the 81st Training Wing mission, our role in aviation, and community partnerships.

Partnered for over 80 years, Keesler Air Force Base and the City of Biloxi have come together to bring aerial performers, including the USAF Thunderbirds, static displays, and other demonstrations, to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a free public event taking place on and off base. The air show will have something for everyone – parents, bring your children to the Kids Zone, where they can experience activities and games to ignite their imaginations and keep them entertained for hours. For our adult visitors, we invite you to kick back, relax, and enjoy a lively Beer Garden, featuring a selection of craft beers to satisfy your taste buds.
