Stuart Air Show - 2014

A record crowd of 50,000 spectators attended this year's 25th anniversary air show at Witham Field. The clear and cool weather was perfect for a spectacular display of aerial prowess by daring pilots in modern as well as vintage aircraft. A lot of excitement was generated this year with the return of high performance jet aircraft after last year's absence due to the federal governments sequestration. The stealth tactical fighter F-22 Raptor and the AV-8B Harrier jump jet, capable of vertical/short takeoff and landings, were the highlight of the show.
