HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA –  Pacific Airshow made history today by landing two airplanes on Huntington Beach to celebrate the three-day spectacle’s return to Surf City, October 4-6, 2024. Pilot Bruce Graham delivered Pacific Airshow Executive Director Kevin Elliott and Casey Pozdolsky brought in Huntington Beach Mayor, Gracey Van Der Mark to a press conference located near the Huntington Beach Pier.

Elliott announced Pacific Airshow will achieve a world-first by constructing a temporary runway on the beach to bring attendees and their families up close and personal with select aircraft at this year’s Airshow.

“Our team is relentless in our pursuit of innovation and our commitment to continually evolve this event. This year is no exception as we will build the very first temporary ocean-front runway at an Airshow,” said Kevin Elliott, Pacific Airshow’s Executive Director. “Our vision has always been to bring the Airshow to the people and this new infrastructure will allow us to bring the public closer to our world than ever before.”

“Pacific Airshow is a tentpole event on the City of Huntington Beach’s annual calendar,” said Gracey Van Der Mark, mayor of Huntington Beach. “The Airshow drives tremendous economic impact for our local businesses and provides a global exposure platform that attracts visitors throughout the year.”

The headlining U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, fan-favorite F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team and A-10 Demo Team are just a few of this year’s performers who will be returning to the event. Dozens of military and civilian performers will be announced in the lead-up to what is being lauded as the biggest Airshow yet.

“As I’ve said many times before, we are just getting started. 2024 marks the eighth year of Pacific Airshow Huntington Beach and the second year of our global expansion to Australia,” said Elliott. “Our 2024 events will set a new standard of customer experience and we encourage everyone to book a ticket and join us in the heart of the action.”

Early Bird General Admission & Pier Seating tickets will go on sale today. These tickets will remain at 2023 pricing until February 29 before adjusting to 2024 ticket pricing for those interested in purchasing their tickets early.
