Gather thee up Palm Beachers ... with sun screen, blankets, chairs, radios .. there is a "once a year" happening going to take place in Ft. Lauderdale, Saturday, May 2 and Sunday May 3, 1998. Along three miles of beach you will see a show that features the finest military and civilian aerobatics performers in the country as well as spectacular activities along the waterfront. All five branches of the U.S. military participate and the highlight will include the United States Navy Blue Angels Demonstration Squadron.

Mickey Markoff of MDM Group, Ltd.Wow! It just does not seem possible, but Mickey Markoff of MDM Group, Ltd., executive producer of this extravaganza seems to have done it again. How could he ever top last year's show? ... But this year's ShellAir & Sea Show will be even bigger and better than the last three.

The plans sound terrific and one of the nicest pluses for the show is the fact that everyone is a winner ...
   It is a huge showcase for South Florida...
   It generates revenue for businesses in the area...
   It assists local charitable organizations...
   It certainly generates community spirit...
   It is a salute to the US military...
   It provides corporations with a platform to utilize as a justifiable marketing tool...
But, best of all .... it is a fun place to be for the millions that enjoy the beaches and watch from their special vantage points.

Ready ... Set ... Go ...
