A local young man sparked his interest in aviation by attending his first Quad City Air Show at only 6 months old, today that young man is none other then - Captain Sam "RaZZ" Larson the United States Air Force F-22 Raptor Demonstration Pilot - lets welcome him home!
The Lockheed Martin/Boeing F-22 Raptor is an American single-seat, twin-engine, supersonic all-weather stealth fighter aircraft developed for the United States Air Force (USAF). As a product of the USAF's Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) program the aircraft was designed as an air superiority fighter, but also incorporates ground attack, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence capabilities. The prime contractor, Lockheed Martin, built most of the F-22's airframe and weapons systems and conducted final assembly, while program partner Boeing provided the wings, aft fuselage, avionics integration, and training systems.



This is a very special Navy Demo Two Ship EA-18G Growler Demonstration, the Quad City Air Show is honored to be one of only 10 air shows selected for this demonstration in 2024. The EA-18G Growler is a variant in the F/A-18 family of aircraft that combines the proven F/A-18F Super Hornet platform with a sophisticated electronic warfare suite. Built to replace the EA-6B Prowler, the Growler is the first newly-designed electronic warfare aircraft produced in more than 35 years.
