The Blue Angels Air Show Schedule Remains Unchanged

July 10, 2019

The Blue Angels air shows are still on at Pensacola Beach Thursday through Sunday, despite rumors and erroneous information being shared on social media.

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

“As of right now every show scheduled is still on track. We won’t cancel any part of the scheduled itinerary until the last possible moment, that way we don’t cancel Saturday’s flight and it ends up being a blue-skied sunny day,” MC2(SW) Christopher Gordon, Blue Angels Public Affairs, told  ”So as of right now every flight is still a go. We will be sure to update everyone as soon as we get the information.”

In order to fly, the Blue Angels need the wind to be under 25 knots (28.76 mph) and a visibility of at least three nautical miles (3.45 statute miles).  However, if air show organizers (the Santa Rosa Island Authority), cancel the show, the Blues can’t fly.

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

  • 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. photo.
