Spectators can bring umbrellas and folding chairs, but no outside food or drinks are allowed.
To accommodate the show, traffic in the area will be re-routed.
Today, from noon until 4:30 p.m., London Bridge Road is closed between
Central Drive and International Parkway.
The same stretch will be closed Friday through Sunday from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Signs will direct traffic to other routes.
This year’s show offers a long list of military and civilian
performers, including the Geico Skytypers, soloists in cutting-edge and
vintage aircraft, hang glider and parachutist performances, tactical
demonstrations of the Hornet and Super Hornet fighter jets, and local
squadrons showing off their colors and aircraft in a Fleet Flyby.
