Seasonal Special Happenings

Cleveland National Air Show

When: Sat., Sept. 3 2016

A Labor Day tradition, the Cleveland Air Show returns to Burke Lakefront Airport today as the Blue Angels will give a one hour choreographed presentation that includes “graceful aerobatics” and “fast-paced, high-performance maneuvers.” The demonstration also includes the Blue Angels C-130 Hercules (“Fat Albert”). Before the performance, Air Show attendees will witness the highly choreographed “walk down” preflight routine as the Blue Angel pilots climb into their F/A-18 Hornets, start them up and head out for take-off. The 2016 Air Show will be the first time for Clevelanders to see a full Air Force F-22 Raptor demonstration. The original Batcoper and Batmobile will also be on hand. Appearing for the first time in Cleveland, the Batcopter will take to the sky, and the Batmobile will cruise the taxiway and show off its patented turbine after burner. Attendees can also meet the TV, movie and air show pilot, Captain Eugene A. Nock, A.T.P. Gates open at 9 a.m. each day. Tickets are $21 in advance, $23 at the door. (Niesel)
