The Breitling Huntington Beach Air Show

Lawrence Sherwin

In case you missed the soaring spectacle of the Breitling Huntington Beach Air Show last October, here’s some of its beauty to inspire you. 

Led by the Breitling Jet team, the skies over Huntington Beach were filled with spectacular performers. A sky diver with an American flag landed safely on the beach. Stunt planes, including the Sasquatch, which also boasted a jet engine, performed their magic. OC Sheriff's rescue helicopter plucked a "victim" out of the water. The Breitling Jet Team, the only private jet performers, raced across the sky and dazzled hundreds of thousands of beach goers with their acrobatics. An F18 super hornet allowed all to feel, hear  and see a jet flying at 600 miles per hour. 

The star of the show was the United States Air Force Thunderbird team. Their precision flying maneuvers awed all and sent a wave of patriotism through the crowd. The event is scheduled to repeat annually: www.hbairshow.com
