While many an armed forces person can be found roaming city streets in full military regalia, here’s what will be happening in the sky above:
Thursday, October 6: Blue Angels Survey Flights (1pm – 5pm)
Friday, October 7: Air Show (12pm – 4pm)
Saturday, October 8: Air Show (12pm – 4pm)
Sunday, October 9: Air Show (12pm – 4pm)
As for where to watch, devotees can throw down anywhere from $55 to $75 for a Marina Green box seat.
The next supersonic passenger jet will fly privately. Later today in Las Vegas, manufacturer Aerion has scheduled a press conference to announce the fleet operator.
