THAAD, C-5M Coming To LM Space And Air Show

USAF Thunderbirds Headline Event

Lockheed Martin announces a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) weapon system and C-5M Super Galaxy aircraft will be on display for the first-ever Lockheed Martin Space and Air Show taking place Oct. 31 - Nov. 1, 2020, at the Orlando-Sanford International Airport, Sanford, FL. These displays join the show's headlining performers, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, and the event will offer a wide variety of other attractions announced in the future.

"Lockheed Martin is proud to sponsor the first Space and Air Show held in the Orlando area in more than a quarter century," said Mike Rein, LMSAS Organizer. "The Thunderbirds are led by Orlando native Lt. Col. John Caldwell, who is flying in his hometown. It's also a rarity to have a THAAD launcher appear at a public space and air show. It's going to be a spectacular event!"

In May, at its facility in Troy, AL, Lockheed Martin presented the 400th THAAD interceptor for the U.S. Army. THAAD is a key element of the Ballistic Missile Defense System and is highly effective at protecting America's military, allied forces, citizen population centers and critical infrastructure from short, medium and intermediate-range ballistic missile attacks.

The C-5M Super Galaxy is a strategic transport aircraft and is the largest aircraft in the Air Force inventory. Its primary mission is to transport cargo and personnel for the Department of Defense.

Lockheed Martin has a more than 60-year history in Central Florida, executing programs across Orlando, Tampa and the Space Coast. These programs support aviation, space exploration, missiles, fire control, and training and simulation technologies – many of which will be on display at the show. The Orlando-Sanford International Airport serves three million passengers annually with more than 75 non-stop destinations. It was opened in 1942 as a World War II fighter and bomber training base.
