  1. Barbara Diaz says:

    I would like to purchase 4 tickets for photo pit. May we bring two children 2 and under with us?
    Do they need tickets?
    Thank you.

    • Air & Space Show says:

      The Photo Pit is not really a place for children as it is located closest to the show’s Flight Line.

  2. Chris says:

    I’m a photographer who would like to buy a photo pit ticket and my brother would like to come along to watch the show. Does he need to purchase a photo pit ticket to sit with me or can he purchase a general admission and still sit with me as long as I have the photo pass? Thanks.

  3. Bob Phillips says:

    Photographers with PhotoPit pass will not be allowed to come in before the crowds to photograph the planes without people all around them?

    • Air & Space Show says:

      That is correct. The Photo Pit is a venue located at show center so you can photograph the flight performances.

  4. Debbie says:

    I would like to purchase photo pit tickets but my friends purchased flight line can I join them after I take photos?

  5. Diane Chenault-Parke says:

    Can you bring a small folding stool into the Photo Pit so you don’t have to stand the whole time you are in the Pit?

  6. Jim says:

    I saw the answer about small folding stools…is it also permissible to bring portable folding chairs with backs (WITHOUT canopies or umbrellas attached) into the photo pit?

    And I see that the photo pit ticket includes admission to the air show, but is parking included or would we expect to pay for parking when arriving?

  7. Carlos G. Sanchez Jr. says:

    I am a 100% Disabled American Veteran and in the past I was able to be in the photo pit without any cost with my wife do the reason that I am in a wheel chair. They never use to charge for any cost at all in Air shows to disabled veterans with a valid military ID card..I would like to know if this applies currently. Also if they don’t honor been in the photo pit, As a disabled veteran, Do we still get the general admission free of charge fo me and my wife.??

    • Air & Space Show says:

      Carlos,

      Thank you for serving our country. We are very grateful! We offer a discount on tickets to everyone who buys tickets to the show if they purchase in advance. Our Photo Pit is is a very limited area designated for the media and photographers who pay for a ticket. We would love to be able to let veterans into the show at no charge, but unlike air shows at a military base we are self funded. We hope you can make it to the show.

  8. Dan says:

    Is there a map available that shows the location of the photo pit? Typically front row seating is available that is on the fence line and that is open to general admission. I’m just trying to determine if the photo pit is in front of this or inline with the fence line general admission seating?
