“We’re excited to add a night show and concert to our action-packed weekend,” said Dennis Dunbar, executive director of the Los Angeles County Air Show. “A night show is one of the very few things residents of the Aerospace Valley have not seen in the sky before. These aircraft literally fly with fire coming from their wings! Fireworks and lights emanating from the aircraft work together to trace its trajectory across the sky. This stunning display coupled with upbeat music provides an electric atmosphere unique to night shows. Craig Morgan is a veteran, a fantastic entertainer with countless hit singles, and when one of those is called ‘Bonfire,’ …well you just have to book a guy like that to wrap-up an amazing Pyrobatic Night Show!”
