Ocean City Maryland Air Show 2009 - Sunday was Awesome!

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds headlined the 2009 OC Air Show!

I spent Saturday and Sunday watching the OC air show. It was awesome!! The air show was visible along the majority of the Boardwalk but we had a premium spot on the beach. We parked at the Convention Center and took the shuttle to 17th Street where we set up chairs and had access to food, beverage and bathroom facilities. Here's the thrilling line-up.

US Coast Guard (USCG) performed a search and rescue demonstration using a Sikorsky HH-52A Seaguard helicopter showing how the USCG locates and retrieves people in distress far out at sea, often in fierce storms and the worst of weather conditions.

The U.S. Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier Demo

Army Golden Knights

Air Force A-10 Warthog, better known as the "Tank Killer"
Matt Chapman and the Eagle 580
Naval Reserve Biplane Demo
Yak-9 Demo
GEICO SkyTypers

Mark June 5 & 6, 2010 on your calendar and come down to beautiful Ocean City, MD for next year's air show.

You neglected to mention it was 50% successful. I was there Saturday 6/13 and it was canceled after four events at 1:30pm due to extreme ground cloudiness.

I agree. Saturday was disappointing due to the weather. Sunday was a good time! I changed the subject line.
