The 2021 Tinker Air and Space show has been canceled due the high number of COVID-19 cases in Oklahoma, the installation commander said.

"We explored a number of alternatives, but after careful consideration, we simply cannot execute a worthwhile event that would not potentially endanger both the community and members of Tinker Air Force Base. We understand what the air show means to Tinker and the surrounding communities, making this decision difficult," said Col. Paul Filcek, the installation commander at Tinker Air Force Base.

The seven-day rolling average for new cases reported was 4,068, the state health department said on Monday.
