Fort Lauderdale Air Show Wows Fans for First Time Since 2013

The Fort Lauderdale Air Show has returned after a three-year absence.

Jets roared through the air Saturday as thousands of spectators watched from the beach.

The last Fort Lauderdale Air Show was in 2013. The show started with a parachute jump team descending over the crowd. That was followed by members of the Canadian Armed Forces performing aerial maneuvers.

The ground rumbled when F-35 Joint Strike Fighter flew over the crowd.

Visitors witnessed some of the formations used in missions, but many today are just a display of pure skill and power of these amazing planes.

The airshow wasn’t the only thing this event has to offer: perfect weather, an enlistment ceremony and great people.

"She’s pretty happy about it,” said Stewart Milton, who brought his mother to the air show for Mother's Day.

The Fort Lauderdale Air Show Continues Sunday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Traffic delays are expected. Florida State Road A1A is closed from Sunrise Boulevard to Northeast 14th Court. Anyone who needs to get through that area, is advised to take Sunrise to make their way around the closure.
