For sure going to be a great airshow. 2021 is still the best one for me but with them having the f-22 this year, makes this one better than last year.

Does anyone know if they’ll do live music? Because the afterburner festival doesn’t seem like a go for the second year in a row.

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.

General Admission is paid, the beach is closed off and you need to pay to get onto the beach.

Reading through this thread, so it sounds like lighting is going to poor for photography (from the beach). Has anyone shot from a boat? How did that go? Just thinking through it, it may be a lot of belly shots as the jets' top
side would face towards the beach side as it passes show center???
I found a boat company that you can book.

Would be nice if one of these multi story hotel buildings can grant you roof access...he he he....but that's probably wishful thinking.

Trying to strategize my shooting location for the best photos results.

Cheers!!

All military demo's will be based at Los Alamitos AAF (SLI). My Supervisor at work is an Army UH60 pilot w/the 40th ID at SLI. Says all their helicopters will be moved to the NE Ramp to make way for the large influx of military aircraft on the larger main ramp.

Most if not all civilian performers will be based at the Lyon Air Museum ramp at John Wayne (SNA).
