McDonald’s Air and Sea Show

“MDM Group has made a commitment to hold the show for the next ten years and we hope that you will continue to produce the corporate hospitality village as well as the name entertainment. I can’t imagine doing anything without you and your wonderful staff.” 

— Mickey Markoff (President, MDM Group/McDonald’s Air & Sea Show)



To create a premier, free-to-the-public air and water show, which would feature the world’s greatest civilian pilots and demonstrate the aircraft of the United States Military.



Over its 13 year run, the Ft. Lauderdale Air & Sea Show was the largest two-day spectator event in the world, hosting over 4.5 million people each year.

In addition to featuring top civilian pilots, the show served as a tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces and annually featured exhibitions by the military’s top aircraft and demonstration teams, including the U.S. Army Golden Knights, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, and the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.

Working with nearly every city service department in Ft. Lauderdale, Paulette Wolf Events coordinated and produced every element within the three mile show site including air & water operations, food & beverage, corporate hospitality management, VIP parties, fireworks, name entertainment, security, crowd control and vendor management.
