E. O. of code for. Kevin how many people showed up to the air show last year. well it was a lot I thought you saw them as you flew over there Gerry well I only counted approximately fifteen thousand but then again I was I was pre main show it was hard to count Kevin when he was wetting his pants. a little hard to. yeah when you're going by at the speed of sound it's a little hard but actually our numbers last year looked like about a little over two million people to the city over the three day period of the show which is Friday Saturday and Sunday so quite impracticable restive crowd Natalie those on the beach but also those that are in the retail centers hotels people just sitting up on the roofs with you know chairs watching it from their their roots it's crazy what are some of the highlights personally for you. you know I really love the sense of community I love the fact that the event you know in a in a noisy environment where there's a lot to do particularly in LA in Orange County at the great family friendly event and you know there's no crime at our event doc on wood it's just a really good bye and you know everybody has a unified looking up enjoying what they're watching enjoying a great day at the beach so I really enjoy the wholesome nature of the event of all of the events we produce it's got a really good feeling I understand that last year I got to fly the Air Force Thunderbirds but what are some of the main. attractions that we're gonna see this year coming up in a couple of weeks. well bye for this year is going to be the best they are sure that we've ever produced you know I'll say the best your show anywhere in the world but I think that given the the fact that we're at the beach and given the line up that we have is absolutely insane but I'll give you some highlights this year we're going to have the royal Canadian airforce snowbirds we're gonna have Jeff Bourbon back in its Jack one ten will have the Red Bull airforce and if you guys ever seen them but they have Kirby Chambliss who fly the aircraft they have the fully aerobatic helicopter as long as well as the the crazy guys squirrel suit the jump out of a helicopter and we've got a an eight ten demo when the Air Force we also have the very first year of the F. thirty five demos to because remember two years ago we had the the Air Force F. thirty five fly over and set up all the car alarms this year it's the full aerobatic demo of the F. thirty five so that'll be full fifteen minute performance by that aircraft this is the very first year that the air force's approve that for for demos so a lot of good stuff and then of course our big our big headliner this year will be there the royal airforce red arrows who have come over and are doing a north American tour all the way from Britain and they've selected Huntington beach at their finality performance before they head back across the pond so that is extremely rare they haven't flown air shows in the state in the nineties and we get to host them the finality here honey to beach very exciting you were talking about some of the different options in terms of in terms of how people can watch this an outside of throwing up a lawn chair on their house along Huntington beach somewhere the place is that you can get along the pier there I'm what are some of the options for those. absolutely what we have our R.
