2020 Teak International Air Show Guide is Now Available for Purchase
Every year, from March through November, millions of people hit the road to watch the excitement and thrills as military and civilian flight demonstration teams put their high performance aircraft through the paces to entertain the crowds and perform at air shows all over the world. Anyone who has attended one of these events will tell you it is thrilling to watch the close quarter flying of the Blue Angels delta formation or the hair-splitting maneuvers of the Thunderbird opposing solos.
While attending the show and enjoying the sights and sounds is an exciting experience that is only half the fun. You can add another whole dimension to that visual experience by monitoring the performing teams’ radio communications.
With a radio scanner in hand, you will experience a whole new the perspective of the show that few of the attendees will ever experience – pilot audio from the aircraft cockpit. While everyone else at the air show is just watching and listening to the public address system narrator, you’ll be able to hear what’s happening inside the cockpit, up in the tower and on the ground with the hundreds of players that keep these screaming, state-of-the-art air machines thundering through the skies.
But you can’t tell the players without a program, and to indulge in the craft of monitoring the air show experience you need a current and well-researched list of frequencies that the various performers may use during their performances.
In our new annual Teak Publishing International Air Show Guide eBook, 21st Edition, former Monitoring Times Editor and TSM Milcom columnist Larry Van Horn - N5FPW, delivers the hundreds of air and ground frequencies that you will need to monitor the action when you are within receiving distance of any air show this year.
From the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds, military parachute and search and rescue demonstration teams, to a wide variety of other military and civilian demonstration teams from the U.S. and abroad, Larry has the list of frequencies each unit has used. Now you can bring the excitement you see at the show to your ears. Listening to the nonstop action at the air show on dozens of radio frequencies is part of the real fun of being there.
But wait, there’s more! Larry also has a chapter on tips for enjoying a great day at the air show. You will also get frequency lists for other possible frequencies that may be used at the air show including DoD Intra-Squad Radio frequencies and hosting site aero and LMR frequencies/call signs. We also include in this eBook up-to-date air show frequency listings for overseas military and civilian aeronautical demonstrations teams.
Finally, you will get the latest air show schedules for the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, Canadian Forces Snowbirds, the Army Golden Knight Parachute Teams and more. We include the latest air traffic control frequencies and selected LMR trunk radio systems for each facility hosting or associated with a show when known.

Great information for the 2016 airshow season
Just what I was looking for. Great information for the 2016 airshow season. I bought it in preparation for a local airshow that I was going to stream over the internet. I was able to find most of the frequencies that I wanted and made for a great listening experience for all.
