The France-based Breitling Jet Team will headline the 2016 Oregon International Air Show Presented by Standard TV & Appliance, which will take place August 5-7, at the Hillsboro Airport. This will be Breitling’s first- ever performance in Oregon. The team is known internationally for their tight formation flying in their seven beautifully painted black and gold Aero L-39 Albatross jets. Breitling made its first-ever tour of North America in 2015, and 2016 is their final tour across the U.S. and Canada before returning to Europe at the conclusion of the 2016 air show season.
“We’re delighted to have the Breitling Jet Team in Oregon for the first time. Their performance is compelling and well choreographed. [This] summer is the last time this team is performing in North America for the foreseeable future because of the high demand for them overseas,” said Bill Braack, Air Show President.
Following a successful 2015 show which boasted 70,000 spectators and more than $288,000 given to area charities, the theme for the 2016 show – “Heroes of the Pacific” – commemorates the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Discounted tickets for the 2016 Intel Oregon International Air Show are on sale now until July 22nd at oregonairshow.com for Early Bird General Admission tickets. Make sure to use the code “earlybird” for $5 off adult general admission tickets and free tickets for children under 12.
