Hyakuri Air Base Air Show was a Air Show held at the JASDF Hyakuri Air Base located in Ibaraki Prefecture.

Hyakuri Air Base is the nearest air base from Tokyo operating fighter jets. Hyakuri Air Base is also the only air base operating F-4 'Phantom' fighter jets. Since the F-4s are scheduled to retire next year, this was the last air show to see the 'Phantom's in action.
