Warbirds Over the Beach Air Show

About The Air Show

See the Military Aviation Museum’s collection of World War II aircraft inflight at the 2019 Warbirds Over the Beach Air Show! Join us the weekend of May 17-19th, for a trip back in time to the memorable days of the Second World War.

Travel to Virginia Beach, alongside the bright sunshine of the Atlantic shoreline, where German submarines once hunted merchant ships in the Gulfstream waters. Look up in the sky, where you will see fighters and bombers of our armed forces patrol the countryside to protect our homeland from the Axis forces.

Our air show includes some of the rarest and most iconic aircraft of the second world war. Blast to the past with vintage live music, entertainment, WWII reenactors, historic camps, WWII veteran meet and greets and more. Come out for a historically great weekend, featuring fun for the whole family.
