5. Miramar Air Show

When is Miramar Air Show? 27th – 29th of September, 2019.

Where is Miramar Air Show held? Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, San Diego, California, United States.

The largest military air show in the United States is held annually ever since the United States Navy inaugurated it in 1953. However, since 1998, the United States Marines are responsible for the event in California.

The United States Marines have dedicated this show to purely showcase their equipment, mostly aircraft. But the event also includes tanks, transport and support vehicles. Additionally, various artillery and infantry weapons are present.

Aerial performances complement the static displays. Most notably, the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds are the main highlights of the aerobatic shows.

This is the best chance for you to see the newest and best fighter jets, weapons and various vehicles that the United States Army uses in its combat missions. If you’re a big fan of military aviation and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, this the perfect event for you!

4. Royal International Air Tattoo

When is Royal International Air Tattoo? 19th – 21st of July, 2019.

Where is Royal International Air Tattoo held? Gloucestershire, United Kingdom.

Currently, if not the largest, then certainly one of the biggest military aviation events in the world. The first Air Tattoo attracted only 100 aircraft in 1971. To illustrate, how much the event has grown, in 2003 the Air Tattoo had 535 aircraft attending. Another important fact is that the Queen herself acknowledged the event, which is why it carries the word Royal in its name. The Royal International Air Tattoo became an annual airshow in 1993.

As for a reason why you should attend the event? I think Jenson Button, an F-1 World Champion can tell you why much better than I can:

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix - but in the air!”

And even better is that everyone that is under the age of 18, can enter the event for free. That fact makes it a perfect family getaway weekend!
