    I’m up on 91st street. I understand the Air Force jets will be flying the entire stretch of OC. Will the other performers come up this far as well?

  2. Darla says:

    So glad to hear that the 2020 OC air show has not cancelled the planned event for August. Love watching our country’s military / and other’s air talent. Always a great show to see!

  3. Cathy says:

    Do you have start/end times for the shows each day. I checked this site and can’t seem to find them – thanks!!

  4. mr. bill says:

    am excited to be coming down to oc for the show, was there for the first one, its a great airshow. on friday would you say the practice demos usually dont start till after 12pm, as i want to see as many flybys as i can. thanks for putting on one heck of a show i hope there will be a huge turn out.

    ps. only wish the f 14 tomcat was still flying, that jet was incredible to see.

    cheers, mr. bill

      Hey Bill, we can’t post the practice schedules for Friday because they are subject to change, but it does tend to be early afternoon-ish. Thanks for being our fan!

  5. Gary says:

    Covid -19 broke my heart. We have been doing the airshow for years and already rented our condo out for that week. Would.anybody want to trade a week.? (In regards to a prior post you could flip a coin between Blue Angles or Thunderbirds
    as they both give me goose bumps and raise the hair on my arms!!!

    • OC Air Show says:

      It makes us terribly sad too that we can’t do beachfront seating this year, but we are happy that we at least get to bring some joy to the skies over Ocean City! <3

  6. Nada says:

    Do you think we will be able to see the planes fly over from the Bay side? Just trying to plan for the family. thank you

  7. Mike says:

    Will there be any other performers that may not be listed coming down from Pittsburgh due to all of the other shows being canceled this year purchased my tickets for the 15th of aug looking forward to the show

  8. Bryce Denzien says:

    Will the demo teams all be performing seperate demos after being with the tunderbirds or will it simply be just a few fly by’s with the demo teams accompanied by the Thunder Birds

    • OC Air Show says:

      Reserved tickets are needed for the beach area at show center from 15th to 17th street. The rest of the beach is public.

  9. Mike says:

    Hello! Can’t wait until the airshow! Do you know if the Thunderbirds will be practicing on Friday afternoon? I’m trying to decide if I should get there on Friday or wait until Saturday. Thanks!

    • OC Air Show says:

      They do usually do a practice run on Friday, but we don’t post the schedule because it is subject to change.

  10. Jeff Howson says:

    Just booked for the Airshow weekend, since AC was cancelled this is my only chance at seeing a show this year! So looking forward to this!

    • OC Air Show says:

      We will have merchandise sales from the various performers, which usually include patches as well as shirts, hats and the like. Not sure if they will have coins.

  11. Keith says:

    Is there a schedule with approx. times per performer for the show on Saturday the 15th? If not, possibly just a start and end time of the show?

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hi Kristel, Blue Angels are every other year, alternating with the US Air Force Thunderbirds! This year is a Thunderbird year.

  12. Scott says:

    What date are the USAF thunderbirds to confirm/cancel by? I’m trying to secure plans for our family.

  13. Kevin Gibson says:

    Glad to see that you guys are still on for 2020. I’m hoping to make it out to this show in August as it’s not every day you get to see 3 out of 4 Air Combat Command demos performing in one show.
