TIME IS RUNNING OUT! SHOW YOUR SUPPORT AND SPONSOR TODAY!

MacDill AFB and the Bay Area Community Presents Tampa Bay AirFest 2014 Featuring the Air Force Thunderbirds – March 22 & 23, 2014.

The Bay Area Community AirFest team has been working behind the scenes to put together an AirFest experience like no other. This includes a world-class airshow featuring National and World Champion performers along with incredible displays of military flight heritage. This year will include the Air Force’s premier demonstration team the US Air Force Thunderbirds! These aviation heroes will be testing the limits of physics and gravity while pulling +/- 9 Gs; screaming across the ground just inches above the earth’s surface. The show will also be featuring death-defying performances by those crazy folks who actually think it’s a good idea to jump out of perfectly good airplanes. Since jumping out of airplanes isn’t dangerous enough, many of them will dare fate as they free fall while being circled by incredible aerobatic performers.

It is incredibly fortunate that in these times, MacDill and the bay area are able to get authorization for AirFest. It is free and open to the public, but it takes a LOT of community support to make it great. If you would like to be a contributor, please contact us below.

Donor levels receive: Logo recognition, published thank you, VIP gate access to the base, VIP parking, shuttle to the flightline, access to the Community VIP Pavilion at flightline center, and tickets to the Afterburners Reception.
