April 22-23, 2017

Saturday & Sunday
Gates open at 9 a.m.


On behalf of the more than 5,000 Airmen of Team Tyndall, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 2017 Gulf Coast Salute open house and air show on April 22-23, 2017. The base gates will open at 9 a.m. each day; admission and parking are both absolutely free.

Tyndall is the “Home of Air Dominance,” and after watching the air show, you will know exactly how and why we got our name. For this year’s show we’ve pulled out all the stops and will feature performances by the Thunderbirds, the F-22 demonstration team, and many more.

Our goal for the Gulf Coast Salute is that you and your families leave with an experience of a lifetime and with a better understanding of Tyndall, our mission and the Airmen who make it happen every day.

We look forward to showing you, and all our community partners, how much we appreciate your friendship and support. Without you, we could not accomplish our mission to “Train and Project Unrivaled Combat Air Power.”

I look forward to seeing you at the show!

Colonel Michael F. Hernandez
Commander, 325th Fighter Wing

Air Power

We believe everyone has the right to understand how our United States Air Force protects the freedoms we enjoy today. The Gulf Coast Salute provides an opportunity to share our passion for defending our nation through precise and decisive air dominance.


Many of our men and women in uniform share neighborhoods, schools and facilities with you. The Gulf Coast Salute lets our Airmen share the pride they have in the jobs with you. It is through your support that we are able to accomplish the mission of training and projecting unrivaled air power.


Come enjoy a free air show and experience the sounds of freedom! The USAF Thunderbirds will headline Gulf Coast Salute 2017, and other civilian and historic aerial acts are scheduled to perform as well.
