Tips for Blue Angels Homecoming Show
You'll be looking to the skies at the Blue Angels Homecoming Show when the Navy's flight demonstration team performs its great feats of skill and courage to a packed field at the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida.
There are a number of ways to see the show, on land and by water. Sail Wild Hearts offers a Dolphin and Angels Sailing Adventure aboard its 53-foot, open-ocean catamaran. The boat launches from its homeport in Orange Beach. Enjoy the journey to the Blue Angels Homecoming Show as much as the main event itself. A light lunch and refreshments are provided during the six-hour adventure.
At the National Naval Aviation Museum, gates open at 8 a.m. and the fun begins at 9 a.m. with static displays of aircraft. Enjoy food booths, vendor booths, virtual reality experiences and other attractions. A Kids Zone, virtual games and a bungee jump will be available to children of all ages. The big show starts at 2 p.m. when the Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Team takes to the skies to show off their gravity-defying stunts. Following the show, the Blue Angels will sign autographs.
Audience members can enter through either gate to NAS Pensacola, but are encouraged to use the shuttle parking lots. Buses will take patrons to and from the air show site. What you can bring: blankets and chairs, and small camera and diaper bags. Baby and infant needs are allowed.
What you cannot bring: food, backpacks, drinks or pets.
Tip: The air show noise can be loud and the tarmac can be windy - two things to consider when planning your day.
