Blue Angels End Season With Veterans Day Show (With Photo Gallery)

November 12, 2017

The Blue Angels closed out their season Saturday afternoon before tens of thousands of people during their Homecoming Air Show on Naval Air Station Pensacola.

The day also included extraordinary aerobatics by  performers such as the Vertigo Air Shows Jet Glider, the world’s only jet-launched sail plane, flown by Bob Carlton; an A-4 Skyhawk flown by Paul Wood; the Mig-17 piloted by Randy Ball; the Super Stearman flown by Greg Shelton with Wing Walker Ashley Shelton; and John Klatt with the Screamin’ Sasquatch Jet Waco. The Navy Leap Frogs Parachute Team jumped in to the show and Chris Darnell drove the 300+ mile per hour Shockwave Jet Truck plus many more acts.

Along with incredible flying demonstrations, dozens of military and civilian aircraft were on display. The static displays also included a variety of aircraft ranging from the present-day, state-of- the-art fighters to aircraft from the 1930s.
