Looking to get in on the Sailabration action without having to deal with any of the headaches? Skip the traffic, parking, crowds and other bothers and see the Sailabration air show’s planes and pilots up-close and personal.

This Saturday and Sunday, Baltimore County joins in the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 at the Star-Spangled Aircraft Display & Festival at Martin State Airport, 701 Wilson Point Road in Essex.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days, visitors can have a great time and none of the stress of getting downtown at Martin State Airport!  Vintage and modern aircraft will be on display, the Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum will be open, and festival vendors will be on hand selling refreshments and memorabilia.

Throughout both afternoons, see aircraft take off and land featuring the Blue Angels. At the end of the display, the Blue Angels will even sign autographs!

Aircraft ranging from helicopters used by today’s Navy SEALS to some of the Air Force’s most advanced jets, to the planes that won World War II will be on display for all to see this weekend.
