Terre Haute Air Show Featuring the United States Navy Blue Angels Returns June 1-2, 2024

TERRE HAUTE, IN - NOVEMBER 8, 2023 - Terre Haute Air Show announced ____ Pacific Airshow today announced that the three-day spectacle in the sky will return to Huntington Beach, September 29 – October 1, 2023, with tickets on sale starting June 1 at 10am. Headlining the event are the world-renowned U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, Canadian Forces Snowbirds and, for the first time in Huntington Beach history, the F-22 Raptor Demonstration team, along with dozens of other military and civilian aviators from around the world.

Now in its seventh year, the three-day event is continuing its mantra of ‘redefining the airshow experience’ with visitors stretching along 5 miles of the California coastline. Already the most attended airshow in the United States, this year’s event will feature an expanded General Admission (GA) area stretching nearly 1 mile from the Huntington Beach Pier to Beach Blvd. The larger GA area will allow for more enhanced hospitality offerings and new ticketing options for small groups, allowing more families to experience the action up close and personal.

“2023 will be our most incredible, most action-packed lineup of all time,” said Kevin Elliott, Pacific Airshow’s Executive Director. “Every year our team tries to dial up the action, but this year’s lineup is simply mind blowing! If you’ve ever planned to attend Pacific Airshow, this will be your year to attend.”

Pacific Airshow announced it plans to remain in the City of Huntington Beach indefinitely, under the leadership of Mayor Tony Strickland, Mayor Pro Tempore Gracey Van Der Mark, Council Member Casey McKeon and Council Member Pat Burns. They played an instrumental role in keeping alive the event that delivers economic impact on par with major sporting events, such as the World Series, as well as global brand recognition for the City of Huntington Beach.

“Our mission is clear, to set the City of Huntington Beach back on a path to success, and part of that success comes from the immense economic and marketing benefit that Pacific Airshow brings to our City,” said Tony Strickland, Mayor of Huntington Beach. “Pacific Airshow is the biggest Airshow in the United States, a favorite event among our residents, it delivers more than $120 million in annual economic benefit to our community, it provides a huge lift to our destination marketing objectives and supports our military.”

Pacific Airshow is also set for its expansion to Gold Coast, Australia with the inaugural Pacific Airshow Gold Coast set to take to the skies down under August 18-20 of this year. Set to be the largest Airshow to ever take place in Australia and the only Airshow in the world to ever boast two editions in two countries.
