Blue Angels Wow Hometown Crowd (With Gallery)

November 11, 2017

The Blue Angels wowed a hometown crowd of thousands Friday onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola during the first day of their Homecoming Air Show.

Tentatively scheduled for both days will be 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 will fly the Screamin’ Sasquatch Jet Waco. The Navy Leap Frogs Parachute Team will jump in to the show and Chris Darnell will drive the 300+ mile per hour Shockwave Jet Truck plus many more acts.

Along with incredible flying demonstrations, dozens of military and civilian aircraft will be on display. These static displays will include a variety of aircraft ranging from the present-day, state-of- the-art fighters to aircraft from the 1930s..

    Fabulous display of America. If you choose not to stand for the flag I suggest you kneel behind one of these.
