Re: Pacific Airshow 2023

So there's a possibility we will not have a Huntington Beach Air Show this coming weekend? Then, I better catch Friday's practice. I'd expect Saturday will happen either way (for all shows this weekend) based on the ICAS note. Military participation on Sunday is in question. Thank you Chris. Apprec...

Re: Pacific Airshow 2023

Hi Everyone,

Looking forward to this Huntington Beach Air Show!!!

What time should I be at the gate for general admission seating to get a good spot? I'm typically an early riser to Air Shows.

Any suggestions on where to park in the surrounding areas?

Thank you for any help.

Re: Pacific Airshow 2023

Its been several years since attending the Huntington Beach Air Show. I assume you can just walk onto the beach and watch it. Paid seating will be fenced off, but the General Admission should be all open? Thanks. MSP Join civil air patrol and you get an AWSOME view! Unfortunately, I may be too old ...

Smoky Hill ANG Range - Open House 2023

Thanks
