2008 Blue Angels Schedule

The Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, announced their schedule for the 2008 show season. Following winter training, the team will begin its 62nd season at Naval Air Facility El Centro, Calif., March 8 and will conclude the season Nov. 16 at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla. The Blue Angels are scheduled to perform 68 demonstrations at 35 air show sites throughout the United States and Canada, as they celebrate 21 years of flying the Boeing F/A-18 Hornet. Demonstration sites are selected in support of the objectives of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense. Public performances greatly assist Navy and Marine Corps recruiting and retention goals, enhance esprit de corps among uniformed men and women, and demonstrate the professional skills and capabilities of the armed forces to bolster pride in the American public.
