Are there any U.S. airshows that feature a lot of foreign military planes?

It'd be AWESOME to see and hear (and feel) some of the aircraft featured in the photos in this forum.

For modern military aircraft, not really. In general, foreign aircraft visit the US these days only for exercises like Red Flag, not for airshows. Your best bet might be Aviation Nation at Nellis AFB, which has had Dutch and Belgian F-16 demos in the past. But their F-16s look and sound the same as US ones. Luftwaffe Tornado training is done at Holloman AFB, NM, and you might get to see one or two examples fly at that base's airshow.

If you're looking to see foreign warbirds, your best bet is somewhere like Chino. But I think you already knew that. ;)

Thanks. I'd really love to see some modern foreign planes. Have to add "Attend an airshow" to my list of things to do while traveling overseas...

In the New England area we would get the occaisional Canadian CF-188, and the Snowbirds. One year at the RIANG air show, we had an RAF Tornado and a Luftwaffe C-160. I was a kid then and without photo equipment. The RAF's Red Arrows made one of their first US performances at the RIANG air show last summer. I wished I had caught them. Another show at Willow-Gorve PA had a German Br.1150 Atlantic, to little or know attention. That same show, in 2002, saw the crash of an F-14 with the loss of both crew members.

I have the same gripe. I would like to see more foreign military aircraft at airshows.
There will be civilian SU-27 "Flanker" at the 2009 Rockford Airshow. It's currently being refurbished by Pride Aircraft to be the world's most expensive aerobatic aircraft. Anyway, I'll try and get some pics and post them, I'll be at the show. The F-22 will also be there so that will be the first show ever with both aircraft.

Offutt's open house air show had two german tornados an an alpha jet on static display. When I was stationed there, lots of foreign planes stopped. I would check it out next year.
