SPACE COAST WARBIRD AIRSHOW
March 15, 16 and 17, 2019
Formerly known as the TICO Warbird AirShow
Valiant Air Command sets date, announces headline performers for 2019 Space Coast Warbird Airshow
Fresh on the heels of an exciting and successful 2018 Space Coast Warbird Airshow, Valiant Air Command's Airshow Director Bob Boswell has announced the date and the headline performers for next year's event. The 42nd annual Warbird Airshow will be held March 15, 16 and 17, 2019 at the Space Coast Regional Airport
. The exciting and popular Friday evening show will again be presented, with illuminated and pyrotechnic equipped airplanes and a massive fireworks display.
Headlining the show, and especially anticipated for Friday's evening events, will be the storied AeroShell Acrobatic Team. Flying WWII vintage T-6/SNJ aircraft, these masters of precision flying will certainly bring the crowd to their feet.
Many other exciting flying acts, and literally dozens of other aircraft ranging from 80 year old fabric biplanes to the most modern warplanes, will appear at the show.
Detailed planning for the show will begin soon. The 42nd Space Coast Warbird Airshow will be a new and impressive event; however, the crowd-friendly aspects of free parking and unrestricted access to over 45 historic military aircraft will continue to guide the planning. The Valiant Air Command will continue to keep you informed as our show takes shape.
2018 Space Coast Warbird Airshow a success for Valiant Air Command, sponsors and community
The Valiant Air Command and the 2018 Space Coast Warbird Airshow wish to thank the many people who contributed to an exciting and rewarding Airshow experience. Our performers and static display personnel were professional and highly motivated. The results were evident all through the weekend.
Our generous private and public sponsors ensured that "the show could go on," and were a wonderful part of the event itself.
Our volunteers, both individual and organizational, were the key to managing the hundreds of myriad details that arise in a large undertaking. Our governmental partners and first responders kept safety and health in everyone's sights, and were always there when needed.
And our media partners, locally based and those from all over the world, "got the word out" and created valuable documentation for future media outreach uses.
The overwhelmingly positive feedback we received this year is a tribute to every one of the hundreds of people involved, and tremendous motivation for us to try even harder for next year's show.
Thanks again, friends

This year's show, which is beginning its fifth decade of excitement and entertainment for Space Coast residents and visitors, will commemorate America's valiant Pacific Theater military aviators and their magnificent airplanes. The show's headliner, the Tora Tora Tora reenactment team, will bring their nine replica Japanese warplanes for their legendary Pearl Harbor attack recreation.
Other World War II aircraft expected for the show include the P-51 Mustang and F4U Corsair fighters, the B-25 Mitchell medium bomber, and, just confirmed, the most evocative of all American warbirds, the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, in fact, the exact B-17 that portrayed the legendary "Memphis Belle" in the 1990 movie! Rides on this classic airplane will be available for purchase.
Lovers of more modern aircraft won't be disappointed, as the US Air Force's Viper East F-16 demonstration shows off the maneuverability and capability of the mighty Fighting Falcon. Visitors can see and tour over fifty vintage and current airplanes, including for the first time the Air Force's massive and capable C-17 Globemaster II. Reenactors will demonstrate vintage military equipment while a carnival awaits kids of all ages.
Advance discount tickets are on sale at the Valiant Air Command website, at local Regions' Bank locations, at the Titusville, Cocoa Beach and Melbourne Chamber of Commerce offices, and at the Patrick AFB ticket office, and of course at the Warbird Museum, at 6600 Tico Road, on the Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville.
