Portsmouth Air Show – Thunderbirds Arrive

There are multitudes of events to attend while staying at our Portsmouth bed and breakfast this summer.  The most spectacular will certainly be the Boston Portsmouth Air Show on August 13 and 14, 2011.  Headlining the air show will be the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds in their first New Hampshire appearance in 25 years.

Other performers and highlights include the Army Parachute Team Golden Knights, the U.S. Navy F-18 Super Hornet and the NH Air National Guard KC 135.  Several other acrobatic teams will be attending, such as the Northeast Raiders and Team Heavy Medal.

Stay at the Martin Hill Inn in Portsmouth for the weekend so you don’t miss a moment stuck in traffic.  The Inn is located just 4 miles from the Pease Tradeport.  Entrance to the event begins at 11:00 with the action running non-stop from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

Last year’s show was very popular resulting in some logistical problems that organizers have sought to remedy this year with double the number of food concession booths, free water stations and a new traffic management system to ease entrance to and egress from the event.

This year’s event raises money to support the Daniel Webster Council of the Boy Scounts and the Brain Injury Association of NH.
