Blue Angels are Home for Red, White, & Blues Week
It’s one of our favorite weeks along the Gulf Coast – the Blue Angels are home! The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are home based at NAS Pensacola, our neighbor just to the west of Destin, FL.
If you are in the area, there are multiple opportunities to watch the Blue Angels train and practice for their appearance in the Pensacola Beach Air Show. Here’s the schedule for the week:
7/11 – 8:00 a.m.: Breakfast with the Blues. We’ll be over Pensacola Beach for our “Circle and Arrival” maneuvers. While not a practice, this is the pilots’ opportunity to get the lay of the land (and the sky!) for the weekend’s demonstration
7/12 – 2:05 p.m.: Pensacola Beach practice demonstration
7/13 – 2:05 p.m.: Pensacola Beach practice demonstration
7/14 – 2:05 p.m.: Pensacola Beach Air Show demonstration
Please note there will not be any NAS Pensacola practices this week. Also, 10 buses and three open-air trolleys will be providing transportation to Casino Beach for Saturday’s main show.
