The Grand Prix has advised the Airport that a C-17 flyover will occur on Saturday, April 18 around noontime. The C-17 will make one pass over the racecourse and then return back to its home base at March AFB. The C-17 will not land or depart from the Long Beach Airport.
On Sunday April 19, three T-38’s jets will flyover the Grand Prix racecourse.
These aircraft are expected to land at Long Beach Airport on Saturday in the early afternoon. They will then depart from the Airport on Sunday around noontime and return back to the Airport before 2:00 p.m.
The aircraft will depart on Monday, 4/20, around 9:00 a.m. Please note that these aircraft are smaller and have a quieter noise footprint than the F-18 jets which frequent Long Beach Airport.
