STUART, Fla. —
The Stuart Air Show is preparing for flight before opening Friday evening.
After the pandemic caused changes to the show last year, resulting in it being smaller, the show is expected to be the biggest one they've ever had, according to Stuart Air Show President Douglas Davis.
With good weather expected, he said he is hoping a lot of families come to see performances, aircraft and events.
"We're one of the largest events in the Treasure Coast, if not the largest," Davis said. "We bring a lot into the area as far as attention to Stuart. We have a lot of our local restaurants. We have statistics that say it is their best weekend. Hotels we max out. Overall, it is just a great family, community event."
The event also highlights the importance of veterans through the use of military aircraft in some of the performances and stationary exhibits, as well as the dedication of the event to Martin County resident Dr. Joseph Masessa.
