The Stuart Air Show is thrilled to debut a new, rare, and never seen before military performance this year, an authentic World War II airborne parachute drop portraying U.S. Military units uniting to secure and hold a key bridge from German invasion, complete with large 8mm anti-aircraft guns, bombs and tanks.
Army Maj. William A "Bill" Shaw, who flew the Army One helicopter for four different presidents and served in Korea and Vietnam, and United States Air Force Lt. Col. Sean McGlynn, who was a USAF Pilot Instructor and served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, will be honored in this year's Stuart Air Show 'Missing Man' tributes.
The Stuart Air Show provides contributions to several designated recipients. Among them is the Road to Victory Military Museum, a nonprofit organization that honors the brave men and women who have served or who are presently serving in the US Armed Forces. The museum is located in the heart of Stuart on Stypmann Avenue.
The Southeast Tourism Society (STS) has named the Annual Stuart Air Show as one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast for 2016. The best events across the southeast United States compete to receive a Top 20 designation. The Martin County Office of Tourism and Marketing and the Stuart Air Show Board collaborated on the application for this prestigious designation.
Hosted at Martin County’s Witham Field Airport for the past 25 years, the Stuart Air Show returns for its 26th year from October 30 to November 1. Led by a voluntary Board of Directors and an Executive Director, the event focuses on honoring the past and inspiring the future while consistently infusing the local economy.
