Attend the Los Angeles County Air Show on Saturday, March 19 – Sunday, March 20 at The Fox Airfield in Lancaster! The United States Navy Blue Angels Demonstration Squadron will roar across the skies of Southern California as the headlining act of the 2016 Los Angeles County Air Show. The Blue Angels, along with an exciting array of thrilling jets, world-renowned aerobatics performers, and historic aircraft, will captivate fans and inspire young and old alike.
As the daughter of a retired American Airlines pilot and Vietnam Vet, this event is especially close to my heart. As a child, I remember my father taking me to see numerous air shows around California. The air show at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, California was all time my favorite. But due to budget constraints many air shows in California have been canceled. So Southern California residents are very lucky to have the Los Angeles County Air Show in town!
On the ground, spectators will be able to explore static aircraft displays, interact with pilots and crew members, and experience interactive attractions and educational exhibits designed to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
