Fort Lauderdale Air Show Jets Returns With Big Ticket PerformancesMay 7, 2016
Looking for something to do this weekend? After 2 years off, the Fort Lauderdale Air Show comes roaring back to Fort Lauderdale Beach on May 7-8, 2016 featuring the top line up in North America in 2016.
The cloudless skies today were perfect for watching jets roar over Fort Lauderdale during the first day of the two-day air show. Big ticket item for this year is the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter, with Headliners including the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and Canadian Air Force Snowbirds.
A large number of city and private parking lots are available along the aerobatic box or aerial football field extending from Ford Lauderdale Beach Park to Oakland Park Blvd. The Galleria Mall on Sunrise Blvd is the closest parking to Air Show Center and the event site for the Fort Lauderdale Air Show that is located at State Road A1A north of the Sunrise Blvd intersection.
Visitors are encouraged to come early and “make a day of it.” Performances start at 11 a.m. each day, and gates close at 4 p.m.
Don’t miss out! The air show is free to the public and ends Sunday. For more information on the Fort Lauderdale Air Show and the schedule of events, please visit their website at: http://fortlauderdaleairshow.com/
