The Kaneohe Bay Airshow will take place on September 29-30, 2012 and is free to the public.
We are happy to have you, your friends and your family as our guests here at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. We will do everything to ensure that your Air Show experience is safe and enjoyable. Every effort will be made to minimize delays in entering and leaving the Air Show area, and base proper. We ask for your cooperation in keeping potentially dangerous items off the Marine Corps Base. At ALL entry points to the air show flight line, ALL bags will be quickly inspected, and all individuals are subject to search prior to entering the air show flight line.
To speed up the process, there will be checkpoints at all three entrances, and several additional checkpoints throughout the air show area of operation to alleviate wait times.
Please note that large bags and/or backpacks, ice chests and coolers will not be permitted. Small bags, such as purses, fanny packs, and diaper bags (8 1/2 x 11) will be permitted. It is recommended that spectators minimize the number and size of permitted items to reduce the inspection time prior to access into the flight line area.
There will be two entrance lines at each gate. One will be for people carrying bags, or other items to be inspected, and one for those with no inspection items.
Please note that this security policy applies to all military and civilian personnel on Marine Corps Base Hawaii, and is currently in effect 365 days a year.
Smoking is not permitted near aircraft or in hangars, and is only approved at designated smoking areas.
