HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Huntington Beach is gearing up for the Pacific Airshow this weekend and it's guaranteed to be jam-packed with excitement.

The airshow will feature incredible stunt performances, precision parachute drops, vintage military aircraft and even an experimental flying car.

"We want to turn this into Southern California's, if not, the world's greatest, family-friendly outdoor lifestyle festival," said airshow director Kevin Elliott.

The three-day event attracts millions of spectators every fall, and Southern California is the perfect place for it.

"We have miles and miles of some of the best beaches in California and it's beautiful," said Elliott. "It's family friendly - you add to that, the great weather, and I think you have a recipe for success."

There will also be a show-stopping finale from the world famous U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Air Force.

"These guys are just incredible, they are truly the best of the best," said Elliott. "You don't necessarily need to know what they're flying to feel that sense of patriotism and pride. It kind of overwhelms you - it's like the Fourth of July meets the Indy 500. It's a magical feeling."

If you can't make your way to Huntington Beach this weekend, you can watch all the high-flying action live on Hulu!
