Really good news for photogs!
2019 Air Show Security and Camera Lens Restriction Update:

Naval Air Station Oceana will NOT be implementing camera lens size restrictions at the 2019 Air Show due to a thorough evaluation of air show industry standards and evolving security protocols. We remain committed to ensuring that the NAS Oceana Air Show provides an environment that is safe and enjoyable for all members of the public.

How does this affect guests, aviation enthusiasts, photographers, and media personnel?

1. Due to updated lens guidelines, there is no longer a "Jet Fan Pass" program.

2. Friday's practice Air Show is limited to DoD ID cardholders, family members, and approved media personnel.

3. ALL published photographers and media personnel are encouraged to apply for a Media Pass. (https://www.oceanaairshow.com/modules/m ... d41e38049/)

Additionally, the following info covers our procedures for screening all items that are brought to the 2019 Air Show:

All bags and hand-carried items are subject to search and inspection prior to entry onto the flight line. Additionally, all visitors are required to enter the flight line via walk-through metal detectors. All bags and hand-carried items will be run through X-ray scanners or visually searched/inspected inside and out to ensure the safety of all guests. Failure to comply with this inspection will result in denial of access to the air show ramp.

Any bag too large to fit through the X-ray scanner will be visually searched/inspected inside and out by our security staff. While there is NO size restriction on camera lenses, any camera lens over approximately 12 inches long will require visual inspection prior to authorization for entry. Photographers are authorized to assist our security personnel with the visual inspection of lenses over 12” to avoid potential damage to your equipment.

Our security staff are in place to ensure the safety of all visitors so your cooperation with this process is greatly appreciated. Failure to comply with this inspection will result in denial of access to the air show ramp.
