HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Final preparations have begun for the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, and their headline performance at the fourth annual Great Pacific Airshow, which will take place Oct. 4 - 6, 2019.
The Red Arrows have saved the best airshow for last and are making their way to Huntington Beach for their Southern California debut after a successful U.S. and Canadian tour. This is their largest North American tour to date, and American audiences have been anticipating their arrival with excitement as the final countdown begins to this performance.
A vital part of the Red Arrows’ tour to North America is the mighty Airbus A400M Atlas transporter. This massive machine, with its four turboprop engines producing 44,000 horsepower, can carry more than 22 tons of equipment and people and provides both tactical and strategic airlifting capabilities during times of crisis and peace. The A400M will only perform “flypasts” at a few select airshows during this historic tour. Don’t miss it’s final performance at Huntington Beach.
“The British are on their way and we are weeks away from what could be our best show yet. This year, we have even more jets and exciting demonstrations that audiences are going to love,” said Kevin Elliott, airshow director and CEO of Code Four, operators of The Great Pacific Airshow.
In addition to the Red Arrows, the Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds demonstration squadron will be returning to the Pacific Airshow.
