WHAT: The United States Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will rock the skies of LA County headlining the Los Angeles County Air Show on March 21st and 22nd at William J. Fox Airfield. Air Show fans at the inaugural event will be captivated by an array of exciting and thrilling jets, gravity-defying aerobatic performers and the rumble of historic aircraft.
Kicking off the event will be Suzanne Asbury-Oliver, the nation’s only female professional skywriter, and her aerial artistry – painted on a canvas some 10,000 feet high – dazzling the skies of Southern California. Resurrecting the nearly lost art of skywriting from the 1920s, the letters in this classic free-style writing are approximately one mile long and two miles high. The messages, which can be seen for up to 30 miles in each direction, become more visible as the wind blows. Keep your eyes peeled to the sky!
WHEN: Starting Saturday, March 15 leading up to the Air Show on Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21
WHERE: Throughout Los Angeles, Antelope Valley and outlying areas (Exact areas to TBD depending on wind and weather conditions)
