SAN PEDRO, Calif. — For the safety of the air show spectators, a temporary safety zone is planned off the coast of Huntington Beach beginning Thursday and ending Sunday.

The Captain of the Port establishes safety zones during high-profile events to minimize hazards. The safety zone is scheduled to encompass all navigable waters from the surface to the sea floor off the coast of Huntington Beach.
