This September, LiveAirShowTV will be right in the middle of the action as America celebrates the Bicentennial of our national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
It was 200 years ago that Francis Scott Key stood on the deck of the H.M.S. Tonnant in Baltimore harbor when “by the dawns early light” he saw the flag’s “broad stripes and bright stars” flying over Fort McHenry.
In 2012, Baltimore was one of the cities that celebrated the bicentennial of the War of 1812, sometimes referred to as the Second America Revolution. The highlight of the weekend celebration was an airshow featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. LiveAirShowTV fed coverage to Jumbotrons placed in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, as well as broadcast live over the Internet.
“We are delighted to again work with LiveAirShowTV when the Blue Angels return to Baltimore in September for Star-Spangled Spectacular,” said Ann Beegle, executive director of Star-Spangled 200. “The 200th anniversary of our national anthem provides a perfect occasion for the Blue Angels to fly above Fort McHenry and relive this national story.”
“We were at Fort McHenry on Flag Day two years ago, with the Star-Spangled Banner waving over the fort,” said Jeff Lee, president of LiveAirShowTV. “This is easily the most historic location we have ever broadcast from.”
Live coverage will begin on Saturday, Sept. 13, and continues on Sunday. The airshow happens both afternoons. Specific times and additional performers will be announced as they become available.
