Get Ready for the Ford Lauderdale Air Show THIS Weekend!

Friday, May 4, 2018

It’s a bird, it’s a plane…it’s the Annual Ford Lauderdale Air Show! Taking place on Fort Lauderdale Beach May 5th and 6th, this is truly an event not to be missed! Be dazzled by dozens of civilian and military performers performing unbelievable stunts in the sky. Headlined this year by the F/A-18F Super Hornet, this year’s show will blow you away.

According to the aircraft’s pilot, U.S. Navy Lt. Chris Walker, attendees can expect to see planes “flying up to speeds of about 620 knots, or 670 miles an hour, they'll see us fly upside down -- we'll do loops, we'll do all sorts of high-speed passes, and then we'll come in for a carrier break at one point and show you what it looks like right before we land on a boat.” Other performers include the New York Air National Guard C-17 Globemaster III Demo and the U.S. Coast Guard Search & Rescue Demo.

Ready to see all of the death defying action? Here are my top 5 picks to watch the Fort Lauderdale Air Show:
