A pair of T-38s accompany a B-2 in the air at the 2019 Wings Over Whiteman. After the success in 2019, the show will return again in 2020. Before the 2020 announcement, the next show was originally planned for 2021.

WARRENSBURG — After the success of the 2019 Wings Over Whiteman, the event will return in 2020, 509th Bomb Wing Cmdr. Col. Jeffrey Schreiner announced Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 13, at the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce Networking Luncheon, hosted by the Military Affairs Committee, at the American Legion Post 131.

In the recent past, Wings Over Whiteman went from an annual event to a biennial event.

This would have slated the next Wings Over Whiteman for 2021.

Schreiner said the success of the 2019 event helped fuel the 2020 event.

He said details are still being worked out but there are plans in place to bring the F-35 Demonstration Team to the 2020 event.

Schreiner said there will be a break from the event in 2021 with the next one slated for 2022.

He said there are hopes of bringing the United States Air Force Thunderbirds to the 2022 event.

As for the 2020 WOW, an official date has not been set but Schreiner said it will take place on a weekend in the middle of June.
