FOG Edwards AFB: Aerospace Valley Airshow
Fri Oct 14 - Sat Oct 15
Join the FlyOutGroup on October 14-15 for a very special event! For the first time in over a decade, Edwards Air Force Base will be open to the public for the Aerospace Valley Airshow, where participants will be able to get up close with military aircraft on the Flight Line, see a variety of exhibits for all ages, and watch an incredible airshow over the backdrop of the Mojave Desert.
According to the event website, “the world-famous U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds flight demonstration team will headline the show and include performances from nearly every aircraft in the current Air Force inventory, various NASA aircraft, and a world-exclusive special ‘Race to Mach 1’ high above the crowd. The event will be anchored by a large STEM Expo, featuring dozens of hands-on activities that encourage the community to think big and create.”
Before the airshow, FOG pilots will be able to fly into Southern California Logistics Airport (VCV) on Friday, October 14th, where we’ll spend the night in a hotel located in nearby Victorville. The next day, we’ll board a bus that will take us to Edwards AFB. Once the show is over, the bus will then drop us off at the airport where you can depart for home that evening.
