Navy Birthday – October 21-23



OCTOBER 13 1775


October 21-23

The USAF Thunderbirds and the Breitling Jet Team will be the show highlighters when many different aircraft fly over the beach in Huntington Beach. Of significance to Navy folks, an F/A-18E Super Hornet, from VFA-122 will also do a flight demo. To get more information, go to the airshow website at

The military aircraft, F-16’s and F/A-18, will stage out of JFTB Los Alamitos. All civilian aircraft will stage at the Long Beach airport. My guess is that the Thunderbirds will do their normal military honors before and after flying which means that they will probably “walk the line” after the shows to shake hands and give autographs. My inclination is to walk down to their area when they return from flying on Sunday. We will already be there with a “recruiting” booth at Wings, Wheels and Rotors Expo so it will be nothing to walk east over to their area on the tarmac to see what happens.
