Jacob Nelson and the Tone Wranglers will be performing March 21 at the Lancaster Municipal Stadium hosted by the Jethawks and the Los Angeles County Air Show organization. The Blue Angels and other performers from the air show will be on hand to meet and greet fans. The event will benefit Flight Test Historical Foundation which supports the Air Force Flight Test Museum at Edwards Air Force Base.

Aerospace enthusiasts will get more than the Blue Angels during the Los Angeles County Air Show at the William J. Fox Field, which will be taking place March 21-22.

After the first day of the air show, The JetHawks and the LA County Air Show will host a family-friendly event 6 p.m., March 21 at the Jethawk Stadium in Lancaster, Calif., where guests will be able to meet and greet the Blue Angel pilots and listen to one of the Antelope Valleyís favorite bands – Jacob Nelson and the Tone Wranglers.

The event is to benefit The Flight Test Historical Foundation which supports the Air Force Flight Test Museum at Edwards Air Force Base.

We are thrilled that the air show offered this event to benefit the Flight Test Historical Foundation,î said FTHF Director of Public Relations, Liz Diachun. ìIt will go a long way to help raise funds for the new museum at West Gate.

The night will be capped off with fireworks but, of course, the biggest draw will be the attendance of the Blue Angels and other performers from the air show. The pilots will be speaking to the crowd and then getting out in the stands to meet and greet their fans,î said Diachun. ìFor any Air Show fans, this is going to be a fantastic way to get a picture with the performers.

Tickets to this event are $10 each and available through www.Jethawks.com

The LA Air Show is March 21-22 at William J. Fox Field, in Lancaster, Calif. For more information, visit www.lacountyairshow.com or www.afftcmuseum.org.
