Pacific Airshow returns to Huntington Beach after 2 years delay – NBC Los Angeles
The Pacific Airshow returns to Huntington Beach, after a two-year pandemic delay.
The air show will be one for the history books, in part because of the air teams that will participate in it. Think of it as a military family affair.
“You’re going to see jets going up to 500 mph,” said Major Ryan Yingling, operations officer, US Thunderbirds. “Point nine-four mach. As low as one hundred and fifty feet to the ground. As close to the crowd as five hundred feet. It’s going to be exciting. I’m excited.”

The US Air Force Thunderbirds, US Navy Blue Angels and Canadian Forces Snowbirds will perform together. And the action is not limited to the air. The event began with a boat race on shore water information kiosks to engage the public.
The airshow was canceled in 2020, victim of the pandemic. His return is welcome.
“The show must go on,” said Tamara Paul, merchandise associate at Huntington Surf & Sport. “It’s just going to be good, good for people, good for normal.”
The festivities will continue on Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
