Vero Beach Air Show 2013

It’s been a long time since Vero Beach has hosted an air show, but the wait is finally over! On Oct 5th and 6th the sky over the Vero Beach Airport will be alive with high flying aerobatics, daredevil stunt pilots, pyrotechnics and more!

The stunning line up of performers includes the world famous GEICO Skytypers Airshow Team with their flight squadron of six vintage SNJ-2 WWII aircraft. GEICO Skytypers will write giant billboards, as large as the empire state building, in the sky that can be seen for 15 miles and finish with a low-ship, precision aerial demonstration in front of the crowd. Also lined up for 2013, is team Tin Stixx, comprised of internationally acclaimed stunt pilots Patty Wagstaff and Skip Stewart, and jet truck driver Chris Darnell. Their performance, which is a mix of intense aerobatics, head on sequences and tight passes surrounded by smoke and balls of fire, is sure to delight Treasure Coast fans. Greg Koontz and the Alabama boys will perform loops, vertical rolls, snaps, tumbles and inverted passes along with their famous low flying ribbon cutting! Additional performers include Matt Younkin doing intricate aerobatics in his striking Red & Black Twin Beech, Quicksilver, Scott “Scooter” Yoak piloting his sleek P-51 Mustang, Chris Darnell in a solo performance with the Flash Fire Jet Truck and more!

Attendees will be entertained on the ground with various static aircraft displays, a vintage/hot rod car show and exhibitor booths. There’s even a Kid’s Zone for kids! Of course an air show isn’t complete without plenty of concessions, offering a full range of affordable food, beverages and merchandise for all to enjoy.
