Los Angeles County Air Show Announces the Red Bull Air Force Will Rock the Antelope Valley

For Christmas procrastinators discount holiday ticket promotion launched today

LOS ANGELES (December 19, 2013) - The Los Angeles County Air Show today announced the addition of the Red Bull Air Force to its exciting performer line up along with a Christmas ticket promotion for last-minute gift-giving procrastinators. Tickets will be discounted online by 20 percent through December 25th at midnight (PDT).

The Show, scheduled for March 21-22, 2014, at William J. Fox Airport, will showcase thrill-seeking performances from the Red Bull Air Force including former two time Red Bull Air Race World Champion and five time U.S. National Aerobatic Champion, Kirby Chambliss, the Red Bull Air Force wing suit flyers, and Chuck ‘Malibu’ Aaron, known as a methodical risk taker and the first civilian ever to be licensed to perform helicopter aerobatics in the U.S. Aaron has also been inducted into the Society of Experimental Test Pilots and is recognized officially as a Living Legend of Aviation.

As part of the Red Bull performance, Kirby Chambliss will fly one of his explosive aerobatic routines in conjunction with the wingsuit flyers creating an aviation circus-like performance in the sky by some of the world’s top extreme athletes.

“We are ecstatic to announce the addition of Red Bull to our ever growing roster of elite performers. Red Bull is synonymous with cutting edge extreme entertainment, and their air show teams have mastered the art of putting on an aggressive demonstration safely,” said Dennis Dunbar, executive director of the Los Angeles County Air Show. “The ability to combine their skills with the science required to pull off these breathtaking demonstrations are exactly what we are looking for when trying to inspire and motivate our youth towards educational based opportunities with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).”

The Air Show will feature several of the top air show performers from around the country including the headlining act, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, high-energy aerobatics, barnstorming, and various warbirds. The Show will also focus on the innovative aircraft whose roots are tied to the Antelope Valley. On the ground, spectators will be able to explore static aircraft displays, interact with pilots and crewmembers, and experience interactive attractions and educational exhibits designed to promote STEM. Stay tuned as we announce additional performers and attractions in the coming weeks.
