OC Air Show To Feature US Coast Guard SAR Demo

Firebirds Team Will Replace US Jet

Officials with the OC Air Show announced this week additions to the performer lineup for the inaugural event, taking place above the beach and boardwalk in Ocean City, MD on June 10-11. The show will feature military aircraft demonstrations, low-altitude flyovers and civilian aerobatic performances from noon to 3 p.m. both days.

Newcomers to the lineup include the US Coast Guard (USCG), who will perform a search and rescue demonstration. The demo using a Sikorsky HH-52A Seaguard helicopter will showcase how the USCG locates and retrieves people in distress far out at sea, often in fierce storms and the worst of weather conditions.

Two new civilian acts have also joined the lineup. The Firebirds will feature two high performance aircraft that combine precision aerobatics with radical gyroscopic tumbles and on-the-edge head-on maneuvers. The Firebirds will replace US Jet in the lineup, who had to cancel due to aircraft maintenance issues. Rob Holland will perform a solo aerobatic demonstration in his MX-2.

"The US Coast Guard SAR demo adds a totally new facet to our lineup,” said Bryan Lilley, president of the OC Air Show. "With this expansion of the lineup we anticipate that the event will extend past 3 hours, perhaps adding as much as 30 minutes a day.”

The performances will be visible along the majority of the famed three-mile boardwalk, creating an inspiring experience for visitors as they enjoy the hospitality of Ocean City’s beach and attractions. Interactive displays and exhibits will be open to the public on the streets surrounding Show Center, located at 16th Street on the boardwalk.

Free public viewing is available between 14th and 16th streets on the boardwalk. Premium viewing opportunities and hospitality chalets will also be available to businesses and public attendees.
