The annual International Air Show kicks off this weekend at the Orange County Airport, starting with paratroopers from West Point.
"We have a heavy military flavor with the F-22 Raptor, The F-18 Rhino Demo Team, B2-5 World War II bomber," said Chris Dirato, with the airshow.
"The demonstration itself, what we're doing is showcasing the Raptor's maneuverability, the reality is the Raptor has a ton, a ton of different things that it can do, unfortunately a lot of that's classified and we can't show it to you. But the demonstration itself is showcasing the super maneuverability of the Raptor, which is bar none the most maneuverable fighter aircraft in the world," said F-22 Raptor Fighter Pilot Switch Helton.
But it's not just military planes and pilots -- there's also civilian planes performing stunts.
Doors open both Saturday and Sunday at noon. Tickets must be purchased in advanced and will not be sold at the door.
A vaccination booth will also be set up at the airport.
