A small airfield (General William J. Fox Airfield) about 70 miles north of LA in the town Lancaster was host for the show. We had beautiful weather 80 F. and a little breeze and the sun from behind, what else do you need for an Air show. Yes, acts in the air and they had plenty of good stuff here, a job very well done. I've been to many Air shows in the US were I felt a sleep, not here. They had lot's of war birds including the ToraToraTora act from the Commemorate Air force. The Blue Angels and Fat Albert were here. The organizers did an extreme well done job even the traffic was well organized. Well take a look at the pictures and you can see why it was a great show and defiantly one of the best shows in the west. It was their third show they organized so this is promising great shows for the future. For your calender next years show is March 25-26, 2017, as the Air Show welcomes back the USAF Thunderbirds. 

The pictures are an impression from the practice and the Saturday display, unfortunately we missed the Sunday when a B-52 flew over.  EJ van Koningsveld Sky-Flash.com

X-47A is a computer-controlled unmanned aircraft system that takes off, flies a preprogrammed mission, then returns to base in response to mouse clicks from its mission operator. The mission operator monitors the X-47A air vehicle’s operation, but does not actively “fly” it via remote control as is the case for other unmanned systems currently in operation.

The Los Angeles County Air Show Board of Directors today announced that the third annual Los Angeles County Air Show, powered by Lockheed Martin, welcomed its largest attendance yet, boasting 137,000 spectators over the two-day event at Fox Airfield. Proceeds from the event will fund several scholarships to regional youth and provide seed money for the 2017 Air Show.
“With this only being our third year, we have once again put on a safe world-class event. Our tribute to the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor including a free Friday night event for the community was not only spectacular but a living history lesson that fans won’t soon forget,” said Dennis Dunbar, executive director of the Los Angeles County Air Show.  “I’m extremely pleased with the overall success of the event and record attendance; we are thankful for the support from our sponsors, community partners, and proud of our hard working volunteers that put in tireless hours to make this event happen.”
The boost to the local economy and outlying areas was significant. Initial projections show $6.8 million in direct economic impact with indirect impact numbers currently being determined. A monetary stipend was also awarded to more than 20 local non-profit groups who provided assistance to the master concessionaire. In the near future, the Air Show board will announce the Los Angeles County Air Show Regional Scholarship Program and its application process for individuals interested in pursuing a career in the areas of science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) or aerospace.
“In three short years, the Air Show continues to make a positive economic and community impact,” said Allen Hoffman, board president of the Los Angeles County Air Show. “We look forward to growing this wonderful event while striving to make a difference in the region and the lives of our youth with the scholarship program and more.”
Save the date for March 25-26, 2017, as the Air Show welcomes back the USAF Thunderbirds. The Air Show website will be updated regularly with news, attraction information and more. Fans are invited to follow the Air Show on Facebook and Twitter (@LACountyAirShow).
The following sponsors and community partners generously contributed to the 2016 Los Angeles County Air Show: Lockheed Martin (Title Sponsor), Northrop Grumman, Southern California Toyota Dealers, Sierra Toyota, County of Los Angeles, Learn for Life, IBEW, Antelope Valley Transportation Association, City of Lancaster and Destination Lancaster.
