2016 Be Clear Security Policy


Let’s be CLEAR about Air Show Security


  • Be prepared to show a Photo ID to expedite your access into the Air Show
  • You can carry keys, makeup, feminine products, comb, phone, wallet, credit cards, etc. in their pockets if they choose not to put them in a clear bag or clutch.
  • You can carry binoculars and/or cameras around their neck or in their hands with or without the case.
  • One large clear bag per person is allowed
  • Either a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or a commercially purchased clear bag – plus a small clutch for personal items.
  • The larger clear bag must be a made of clear PVC vinyl and is easily searched.
  • The one-gallon Ziploc bag is readily available, inexpensive and easily searched. The small clutch allows privacy for small personal items and also is easily searched.
  • Unlike some event venues, we are not banning all bags. Small clutch purses, with or without a handle or strap, are permitted along with either the large clear bag or the one-gallon freezer bag.
  • Large traditional seat cushions that have pockets, zippers, compartments, or covers are not permitted. Clear seat cushions and seat pads without pockets, zippers, compartments, or covers are permitted
  • Diapers can be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, would be allowed to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse on the flight line.

An exception will be made for medical necessary items after proper inspection at a specified lane at each gate designated for this purpose
