In 2012, it was announced that the Andrews Air Show will be held every other year for budgetary reasons. However, the show has been cancelled for 2014 as well and it is not clear when the next show will be scheduled.
The Andrews Air Show is a Joint Service Open House and air show at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington DC. The show features the Blue Angels, the United States Navy's flight demonstration squadron, performing fast-paced aerobatic maneuvers of two, four and six planes flying in formation. The Golden Knights, the U.S. Army Parachute Team, perform along with many other aerial and ground attractions.
The air show is family-friendly and a great way to support our military and marvel over the aerial maneuvers of skilled aviators. Admission is free. Attendees are allowed to bring their own lawn chairs. Backpacks are prohibited and no outside food or beverages are permitted.
