The spring event season is ready for takeoff with the Wings Over Myrtle Beach Air Show, a high-flying kickoff April 28 and 29, 2018, at the Myrtle Beach International Airport. It’s the first time in more than a decade that the Blue Angels have flown our blue skies in Myrtle Beach.
The Myrtle Beach air show will showcase the U.S. Navy Blue Angels in thrilling formations in their six signature gold-and-blue F-18 Hornets, as well as a full schedule of performers, including national aerobatic champions Rob Holland, Patty Wagstaff and Michael Wiskus, a Smoke-n-Thunder Jet Car Show, the Sky Soldiers and many more.
Tickets for the Blue Angels Air Show are available at www.wingsovermyrtlebeach.com.
