Air & Sea Show Fun Fact:

The McDonalds Air and Sea Show was nationally sponsored by McDonalds and had a national tv deal with ESPN and another major news network. The airshow would air on ESPN and the concerts would air on the other news station. The Mcdonald's Air and Sea Show hosted more than 2 million people a year which made it one of the largest events in the world at that time.

2007 Mcdonald's Air And Sea Show

The 2007 McDonald's Air and Sea Show would be the last air and sea show done by the Mickey Markoff group in the city of Fort Lauderdale. Despite being it's final show it went out with a bang! The 2007 edition of the show would be headlined by the United States Thunderbirds and feature one of the first public displays of the F-22 Raptor.

Thank you.

Most of the aircraft participating at this show were stationed at Miami Opa-Locka Air Port (or CGAS Miami.) Due to the high volume of military hardware it was requested that the security forces of the 482nd Wing of Homestead ARB would stand guard and provide security to the airport.
