San Francisco is one of the few major US metro areas that sees a large-scale air show every year.     Initially, the ‘Fleet Week’ was when Navy boats and sailors would come out at San Francisco’s docks, but for the last decade the air show has been a major draw and the city receives more than a million spectators on the days of the event. Since its restart after its cancellation in 2013, it now also features a number of non-US aircraft groups.  Taking place over three consecutive days in the skies above the City’s waterfront, this event attracts over a million people around the Bay. Featuring the United States Navy Blue Angels, the Air Force’s F-22 Raptor, the Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 and, from France, the Breitling Jet Team.

The 2016 Fleet Week Air Show lineup included some new and exciting additions to our lineup to be announced in the coming months.     Along with the Blue Angels, the popular Parade of Navy Ships returns. Get front row seats to watch the San Francisco Fire Department’s Guardian dramatically spouting water under the Golden Gate Bridge as it leads the parade of ships.


Traffic in the city comes to a virtual standstill while the jets are in the air. If you don’t have access to a roof in the marina district, these sites are the best viewing spots:

SF National Maritime Park, just under Ghirardelli Squar

Fort Mason

– Anywhere along Crissy Field East Beach
