Headlining this year’s event are the Blue Angels. The Blue Angels are the United States Navy’s flight demonstration squadron, with aviators from the Navy and Marines. The Blue Angels’ six demonstration pilots currently fly the Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, typically in more than 60 shows at 30 locations throughout the United States and Canada each year, where they still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in their aerial displays in their inaugural 1946 season.
An estimated 11 million spectators view the squadron during air shows from March through November each year. Members of the Blue Angels team also visit more than 50,000 people in schools, hospitals, and community functions at air show cities. Since 1946, the Blue Angels have flown for more than 505 million spectators.
Another major performer will be the F-16 Viper Demo Team. The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-seat, multi-mission fighter with the ability to switch from an air-to-ground to air-to-air role at the touch of a button. With its lightweight airframe and powerful General Electric engine generating 31,000 pounds of thrust, the F-16 can fly at speeds in excess of Mach 2.
