All eyes will turn to the sky for Ocean City’s Air Show Weekend on Sept. 15 and 16. All events are free to attend.
The celebration starts with the Ocean City Airport Festival on Saturday, Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The festival features a ground display of unusual airplanes ranging from World War II to the present. The event will feature a parachute jump from Team Fastrax. It also will include food, music, classic cars and kids’ activities, including the Ocean City Board of Realtors’ popular Bubble Mania.
A new addition last year, the Parachute Pyrotechnic Show, will return at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15. The show consists of several highly trained and specially licensed Team Fastrax parachuters exiting an aircraft 6,000 feet above Ocean City’s beach and boardwalk. Brilliant white or multi-colored projectile pyrotechnics are then ignited as the parachuters fly in formation, creating a dazzling display for spectators on the ground. The jump will end with a landing on the Seventh Street Beach and will be viewable along the entire Boardwalk.
The Boardwalk Aerobatic Air Show will bring some of the best stunt pilots and aerobatic champions in the world to put on a show over the beach and boardwalk between Sixth Street and 14th Street starting at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16. Some of the performers will include Kevin Russo, David Windmiller, Paul Dougherty, Redline Airshows – Jon Thocker & Ken Reider and Team Fasttrax.
