Get an unobstructed view in front of the crowd line from two different restricted access locations with a Photo Pit pass

 

The Photo Pit is located in a restricted access area outside of the crowd line that provides an unobstructed view of the aircraft both on the ground and in the air.  An infield VIP parking permit is included with every Photo Pit Purchase.  Availability is limited to 50 people per day for the Photo Pit program. Tickets must be purchased in advance for the Photo Pit experience!

    I have had photo pit passes for all 3 of the previous shows. The first two experiences were positive, but this year there was no thought put into the layout of the pit. The announcement stand was directly in the line of sight towards the hanger area and blocked the far right field of view and the speaker stand on the left side blocked the line of sight to the left of the pit up towards the end of the runway. Besides that, cars were parked directly in front of the pit obstructing the view of the aircraft on the runway. At least for the money you get for those passes you could supply those in the pit with some cold water without having to leave expensive photo gear unattended to replenish your supply after consuming the one bottle allowed to carry in. Despite these oversights, I was pleased with the way the that the schedule was re-arranged for Saturday’s lineup to manage the weather and the performers were excellent.

    If there is a rainout, is there a refund policy, or if I purchase a ticket for Saturday is there an accommodation for Sunday ?

  3. Werner R Ennesser says:

    I already purchased the Photo pit pass is there only 1 location on the field or is there multiple locations to get shots from. Any chance you can explain better where the locations will be for the photo pits in reference to show center? Also will chairs and tripods be allowed in those areas?

    is there a shade area near the photo pit (tent). ?
    I have purchased a photo Pit pass for Sunday, if I bring someone who has the general admission ticket and I park in the VIP area will they be able to get from parking to the general admission area and back? I understand they would not have access to the photo pit.
    Thanks

      There is not shade in the Photo Pit. We want you to have a clear shot of all the performers!

      You guest will be able to get in.

    I have never been to this show. For General Admission, can you bring a fold-up chair, backpack and or coolers?

  6. Julian Vigder says:

    I am planning to attend and would like to bring my daughter who is 5 into the photo pit. Is there a restriction against bringing her into the photo pit and what is the cost?

    Thanks

    Printed my Photo Pit tickets for both days of the 2017 show but didn’t see or receive the associated VIP parking permits. Will they be emailed separately?

  8. Lee Ames says:

    I am handicapped and need to be pushed about in a wheelchair by my wife; what sort of ticket does she need to go with me into the Photo Pit? But I’d love to be able to get some great photos with my CANON camera and tele-zoom lenses . . .

    Thanks . . . Lee Ames

    Great show on Saturday. I am so glad the weather held out both days. Took forever to get on buses and out of lot but understandable based on the turnout. Would not deter me from coming back for my third year in 2017.
