Plans Finalized For Four-Day Blue Angels Show Over Pensacola Beach To Orange Beach

June 27, 2020

Plans have been finalized for the 2020 Pensacola Beach Air Show in July.

The four-day event program has been designed around social distancing while following CDC guidance for the COVID-19 virus.

To further comply with CDC recommendations, the 2020 air show has no center point, which allows the footprint to be expanded substantially.

The modified program for 2020 will provide an air show from Park East on Pensacola Beach to Orange Beach, Alabama. Fans of the Blue Angels will have an opportunity to view and hear the series of beach flyovers on July 8, 9, 10 and 11.

Each day will have similar flight maneuvers and each show will last 45 minutes, weather permitting. This expanded schedule will give the public four different opportunities to view the performances at least once.

To beat the summer heat and reduce the strain on available resources, each show day will begin at 10 a.m. with aerial displays along the beach.

On Friday, July 10, and Saturday, July 11, three civilian acts will follow the Blue Angels performance, and these will be flown over Casino Beach from 11:30 a.m. to noon.

    Please stay home people , the less we social distance the longer we deal with the virus and the more people die. If your ok with 2/8 people you care about dying and spreading the vi us further, by
    all means.,.

    This will give many more people the opportunity to see The Blues and spread out. For those people that are concerned about being exposed to groups, I would suggest you avoid going into grocery stores. The vast majority of the customers still do not wear mask. We live directly over the flight pattern near the west gate where The Blues practice. These guys represent the freedom we have in this country. If people do not not fill comfortable about being out in public, you have the freedom to stay home. We all need to use good judgment. As far as The Blues are concerned, God lov’em and God love our great men and women that protect our rights to either enjoy watching them or staying at home!

    This seems like a good compromise. Seems like a decent way to go and follow social distancing. It’s still good to be cautious and not to get up close and personal with everyone. Protect your family and community by not picking up virus that you spread to anyone else. No symptoms doesn’t mean you aren’t spreading it to someone else like your kids or family.

    what day will you be over each location?

    Yeah whatever Theresa. I’m sure those 125,000 plus mothers, fathers, grandparents, brothers, sisters and children all died as part of a “ploy”. One thing that masks won’t protect us from is ignorance. Science is real, even when it’s inconvenient for you. Wearing a mask to protect others is a simple showing of respect and concern for others. Doesn’t seem like too much to ask. I was raised with the golden rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Even though I disagree with your views, I would not want to cause you to catch a potentially deadly virus, so sad that it seen as wrong thinking by some these days. #makeamericakindagain

    Will we be able to see from Gulf Shores, too? I love watching Blue Angel maneuvers.

    Yes,we’ve learned that the Covid19 virus is .03 microns. The human hair is 70 microns. Flimsy bib masks are equal to jumping under your desk for safety , during a nuclear attack.
    This is all a political ploy.
    Go enjoy yourself and forget politics for a minute.

    GREAT Plan to fly the longer route from around Navarre to Orange Beach.
    Will give Many more folks a chance to see OUR Blue Angels.
    Bet there will be some along the flight path who are Totally Surprised and Amazed due to not knowing there will be an air show.

    Hey, it is Still a Free Country and if some of you feel “uncomfortable” out in public and amongst other human people, then simply STAY HOME. Easy Peasy but don’t keep whining about how afraid you are.

    GO BLUE ANGELS — Prayers for an Awesome and Safe Show.

    For one thing this whole coronavirus has been blown out of proportion it’s a political ploy because of the upcoming election this has been in the works for many years and a lot of the people in Congress and billionaires know all about this and it was done on purpose, wearing the masks don’t help anyway!

    Its a great thing for Pensacola and orange beach. We need something positive. This will help make up for canceling our fireworks. No one is forced to go watch. If you don’t like it stay home.

  11. Susan Boudreaux on June 27th, 2020 11:00 pm

    We all need something positive to look forward to and since there’s no central location, there’s plenty of beach for everyone to space out, have a picnic and enjoy the sights and sounds of our amazing Blue Angels!❤️❤️

    Rufus & Heidi, stay home & drink more koolaid!! ❤️ Our Angels!

    If you’re worried about the air your breathing it’ll probably be full of jet fuel exhaust and that’ll kill all kinds of germs
    GO BLUE !!!

    Yo Heidi Quinley Nobody is forcing anyone to go to the show. It is a totally optional event. So, if you don’t like it, don’t go. It’s that simple.

  15. Rusty Mack on June 27th, 2020 1:44 pm

    Sounds like a good plan. If you are uncomfortable with it, don’t go. Make choices based on your circumstances. But don’t judge others because of your circumstances. It’s my life to do with it as I please.

  16. Heidi Quinley on June 27th, 2020 12:41 pm

    This is absolutely stupid. So much sickness still being spread and yet they’re still continuing on as if nothings happening.

  17. Renita on June 27th, 2020 12:40 pm

    Rufus, you don’t like. DONT COME. We all need something to help us out of this disaster.
    This is not a mistake by any means. So don’t try and ruin for others who want and need this.

  18. Janice on June 27th, 2020 10:41 am

    Love the idea of including Orange Beach. Should become an annual event. Maybe this will lessen the mess in Pensacola. Thank you for including Orange Beach. Can wait for the show. Love the Angels

    This is a bad idea. Have we learned nothing?
