Guests will be allowed to bring sealed beverage bottles or empty reusable bottles, wagons or lightweight strollers for children, stadium chairs and cushions. Prohibited items include weapons, toys that resemble weapons, RC aircraft and drones, pets (except for service animals), outside food and glass bottles, and excessively large items.

Upgraded seating in the Flight Line Club is available for $135 for adults or $75 for children. Premium box seating is available for $30.

The last show was in 2017. The open house and air show is normally held every other (even) year but it was held in 2017 instead of 2018 because it was the Air Force's 70th birthday. More than 160,000 attended that year.
