Ford Lauderdale Air Show Flies Into Town

Keep your eyes on the sky May 6th & 7th as the 22nd annual Fort Lauderdale Air Show flies into town! Spectators will witness a piece of history watching aircrafts soar above the shores of Fort Lauderdale Beach.

The “Ford Lauderdale Air Show” weekend will kick off with local rising country music star, the Shane Duncan Band performing Friday evening 6:00 p.m to 9:00 p.m at 300 South Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd on Fort Lauderdale Beach. Meet and greet the pilots on Friday evening at Blondies. Don’t forget to visit displays and exhibits Saturday and Sunday, located on State Road A1A north of Sunrise Blvd. Exhibits will feature simulators, interactive exhibits, and much more from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. 

The largest beachfront “Ford Lauderdale Air Show” of its kind kicks off from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm where pilots will warm up their engines featuring the Canadian Armed Forces Snowbirds, U.S. Air Force F-16 Viper, U.S. Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey and many other performers.

See stunts at just four feet apart as the world famous Canadian Forces Snowbirds will fly at speeds up to 370 miles an hour demonstrating their ever popular 9-plane aerobatic formations. Pilot extraordinaire Sean D. Tucker will make his first appearance in a decade with his Team Oracle aerobatic biplane act and the GEICO Skytypers will return once again this year. The F-16 Viper will show off their speedy flybys and thrilling stunts with precision. Pilots will show off both their skill and the wonders of flying the Harrier Jump Jet hovering 360° at multiple high-speed passes and evasive maneuvers. The 2017 Ford Lauderdale Air Show will feature a full capabilities demonstration of the new Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornet known as the “Rhino” which is 20% larger in size than the original McDonnell Douglas F-18 legacy Hornet.
