Blue Angels bring high flying fun

The Blue Angels have launched their 2019 season along our beautiful Florida beaches, and members of the public are invited to come check them out.

The Blues are a skilled team of U.S. Navy precision flight demonstrators who showcase the power and prowess of F/A-18s in sequence of impressive maneuvers in shows. They are accompanied by the C130 “Fat Albert” and other flight performers on occasion.

What could be better than a spot on the beach and a show in the sky? This year shows visible from Navarre Beach will be July 13 and November 8-9 (Homecoming Air Show).

You can also check out their practices at the National Naval Aviation Museum.
