The Great Pacific Airshow returns to Huntington Beach, California on Oct. 19, 20, and 21 and we here at KFI cannot be more excited! We'll be broadcasting all the action live using the iHeartRadio App so you can hear the announcers call the action as it happens. You'll also be able to hear interviews with the pilots, details about the airshow, and more!
TGPA combines the excitement of extreme sports, high-tech aerial maneuvers, beachside surf nostalgia, and patriotism for an unforgettable experience on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!
Last year, more than 1.5 million people attended the airshow making it the country's BEST airshow experience. This year, more than 2 million people are expected to join us in Huntington Beach on Oct 19, 20, & 21 for the thrilling airshow!
