McDill Airfest 2014

featuring the Air Force Thunderbirds

Members, dust off your telephoto lenses and get ready to head to MacDill AFB to see the Thunderbirds perform overhead. MacDill AirFest 2014 in Tampa, Florida is a 2 day air show event open to the public. The gates to the free event open at 8am and the Tampa air show starts at 9 AM and ends 5 PM on both Saturday and Sunday. The annual AirFest at MacDill Air Force Base attracts over 750,000 people to watch flight demonstrations over the South Tampa air field.

The 2014 MacDill AirFest features the Thunderbirds, the US Airforce's Flight Demonstration Squadron. The Thunderbirds fly in close to 70 air shows each year at about 35 air show locations. Each year the MacDill Air Force Base rotates the flight demonstrators so the AirFest is different each year. The last time the Thunderbirds performed at McDill was in the 2011 MacDill AirFest.

Other demonstrations at the MacDill AirFest 2014 air show will be announced as more details are released.

Car pooling will be available from the Target parking lot at Clearwater Mall. More details will be announced as we get closer to the date. Below are some images from past shows. We look forward to the return of the Airfest and hope that you can join us for this truly great experience.
