Members of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team will visit MTSU this coming Friday (6/3/2016) in advance of this year’s Great Tennessee Airshow June 4th and 5th at the Smyrna-Rutherford County Airport.
The special combined appearance by representatives of both groups, free and open to the public, will run from 8:30 to 10:30 Friday morning in the State Farm Lecture Hall at the MTSU’s Business and Aerospace Building.
Interim University Provost Dr. Mark Byrnes said, “We’re honored to welcome the Blue Angels and Raptor teams to our campus. This terrific event, sponsored by MTSU’s Department of Aerospace, will allow campus and community talk to pilots and learn more about their powerful aircraft.”
The back-to-back presentations will feature Blue Angels personnel from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., followed by Raptor team members from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
