July 9, 2019

It’s Red, White, and Blues Week with the annual Blue Angels air show at Pensacola Beach, but what about the expected tropical weather?

With a tropical weather system expected in the Gulf Of Mexico, the Blue say they will wait until the last minute to make any cancellation announcements.

“We are aware of the weather system forecast for this week, and are monitoring it. We will not make a decision to cancel or postpone a practice or performance until the last possible second,” the Blue said in a statement. “More than once this decision has been made after the pilots entered their aircraft and prepared to taxi.”

Here is the schedule, as it stand now, for the Blue Angels:

Wednesday: Breakfast with the Blues at 8 a.m., over Pensacola Beach. Watch circle and arrival maneuvers, which are performed at all show sites to familiarize the Blues with the performance area

Thursday: Practice over Pensacola Beach at 2 pm.

Friday: Practice over Pensacola Beach 2 p.m.

Saturday: Show time at 2 p.m.

Sunday: Weather make-up day only. Flight time TBD.
