Air show set to showcase historic planes

March 23, 2018 by  

The LA County Air Show is taking place in Lancaster this weekend.

This popular annual show brings some of the most historic and high-efficiency aircraft to the area; guests can watch them soar and have the chance to check out some high-performance aircraft up close on the ground. They will also have the opportunity to talk to some of the pilots of those planes, and among those set to appear at this year’s show are Col. Joe Kittinger and Alan Eustace.

Among the planes flying will be the A-36 Bonanza and the DH-100 Vampire. There will also be performances by the Patriots Parachute Team and the MV-22B Osprey Demo Team.

Other special exhibits will include a look at Lockheed Martin at 75 years, as well as a history panel discussion.

VIP tickets can be purchased for $160. These include a buffet lunch and drinks, access to the VIP chalet, and a swag bag filled with freebies and printed information, likely including promotional products produced with the help of a Lancaster printing company.

The LA County Air Show will be held at W. J. Fox Airfield in Lancaster tomorrow and Sunday, March 24 to 15. General admission tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for military and $10 for children between the ages of 7 and 12. Visit the official website for the latest information.
