Huntington Beach Pacific Airshow Fri Sat & Sun - Sep 30th – Oct 2, 2022!

Pacific Airshow will be Sept 30th to Oct 2nd, 2022

U.S. Navy Blue Angels, Celebrating Their 76th Anniversary, Will Showcase New Super Hornet and New Routine

The Pacific Airshow announces that plans are underway for the 2022 airshow in Huntington Beach, Calif., which for the first time will feature top performers from the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines.

“We are all looking forward to 2022 and what better way to celebrate Pacific Airshow’s return than with a performance from the legendary Blue Angels on their 75th anniversary in their new aircraft and the crowd-favorite Canadian Snowbirds,” said Kevin Elliott, Airshow Director and CEO of Code Four, operators of Pacific Airshow.

The inspiring U.S. Navy Blue Angels will return to Huntington Beach in 2021 as the popular squadron celebrates its 75th anniversary and showcases the speed, power and agility of its new F/A-18 Super Hornets with an updated astonishing routine. This year, the squad began the transition from older legacy Hornets which the team has flown for 34 years to the new Super Hornets and updated its support plane to the C130J, known as Fat Albert. Fat Albert is expected to fly in the show, too.

Making its Pacific Airshow debut will be the U.S. Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey Demo Team, flying the distinctive Boeing-built twin tiltrotor craft that combines the agility of a helicopter with the high-speed performance of a turboprop aircraft. The Osprey can carry 24 Marine combat troops twice as fast and five times farther than previous helicopters and greatly enhances the advantages Marines have over our enemies.

Representing the U.S. Air Force will be the F-35 Lightning II Demo Team. Led by Captain Kristin “BEO” Wolfe, the team’s demonstration pilot and commander, the F-35 demonstration will highlight the aircraft’s speed, agility and high g-force turning capabilities in a dazzling performance of precision.

The U.S. Army’s Golden Knights, the branch’s official aerial parachute demonstration team, will also perform at Pacific Airshow.

The elegantly stylish nine-jet Canadian Forces Snowbirds aerobatic team will join the Blue Angels to co-headline the 2021 Pacific Airshow. Officially known as the Canadian Forces 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, the Snowbirds have dazzled audiences at the Pacific Airshow twice in the past five years and fans can expect another impressive performance next year.

The 2021 Pacific Airshow lineup will also feature exciting, crowd-pleasing top civilian performers, to be announced soon as well as additional military performers. Visit pacificairshow.com for up-to-date information about performers.

The 2019 Pacific Airshow was seen by more than 3 million people and has become the cornerstone fall event in Huntington Beach and throughout Orange County. The 2019 Airshow contributed more than $3.4 million in revenue to the city of Huntington Beach alone, with $68 million in direct spending and an overall economic impact of more than $105 million, according to a third-party report prepared by Destination Analysts.

The 2019 Pacific Airshow was also named one of the Top 5 Airshows in the country by USA Today’s 10Best and the Civilian Airshow Site of the Year for the second time by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.

A limited special VIP Airshow Experience package will be available for the 2021 Airshow that will include a four-night ocean-front stay at the Kimpton Shorebreak Huntington Beach Resort, VIP chalet experience for all three days of the show, a behind the scenes curated experience and more. For more information about the VIP package and to become involved with the 2021 Airshow, please visit www.pacificairshow.com.
