Highlights of 26th Annual Stuart Airshow in Florida!

You know it is autumn in Martin County, Florida when you hear the roar of the jets flying overhead! This year marked the 26th Annual Stuart Airshow that featured some new and exciting exhibits and aerial acrobatics!

The much-beloved event ran from October 30th – November 1st 2015 at Martin County Airport – Witham Field in Stuart, Florida.

According to Meghan McRoberts from WPTV®, in her report she mentions that, organizers had expected over 55,000 visitors with a local economic impact of over 2 million to the local community. The event also raised much-needed funds for area non-profits.

Thousands of residents and tourists alike turned out to see The Golden Knights, the United States (U.S.) Army’s official aerial demonstration team. The team travels around the U.S. performing parachute demonstrations at air shows, major league football and baseball games, and special events, connecting the Army with the American people.

The crown loved the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon, with a thrilling maximum speed of 1,345 mph!

The roar of the engines could be heard for miles from the F-18’s. According to the event website, “The U.S. Navy F-18 Hornet, the US Navy’s Tac Demo Teams are made up of actual Fleet Replacement Squadron (FRS) instructors flying the same jets used to train new students. The primary mission of an FRS is to train newly designated aviators, as well as transition aircrew into the F/A-18A-F Hornet and Super Hornet. The Tactical Demonstration or “TAC Demo” is designed to highlight the mobility, versatility, and power of the F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet for the citizens who look to the Navy for the defense of freedom.”

Patrons also enjoyed the performances by the John Klatt Airshows. Spectators were enthralled by Lt. Col. John Klatt, he is one of the top aerobatic performance pilots in America.  He has thrilled millions of air show spectators for the past decade, with his own unique blend of precision, power, and performance.  According to the event website, “John’s Air National Guard career and service has equipped him with some of the finest flight training in the world, and it is a tremendous honor for him to use those skills to entertain air show fans, and encourage them to learn more about the outstanding opportunities and benefits available in the Air National Guard.”
