CORPUS CHRISTI – The Blue Angels flight group arrived in the coastal bend this morning in preparation for their role in the big air show this weekend. Because of dense fog Thursday morning, three of the jets landed at Naval Air Station Kingsville, the three other jets were diverted to NAS Corpus Christi until the fog cleared. The Blue Angels are the headline act for this weekend’s “Wings over South Texas” air show in Kingsville. Thousands are expected to watch them perform around mid afternoon Saturday and Sunday. The Blue Angels are scheduled to perform around mid-afternoon on both of those days. Events begin on Friday, April 8th with a 9:30 AM pep rally at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, featuring members of the Blue Angels team and fly-overs by some of the performers. That evening, the City of Kingsville hosts a “Meet the Blues” event at J.K. Northway Coliseum, which includes a performance by the Silent Drill Platoon and a chance to get autographs from the Blues and other performers. Doors open at 5:30 PM and the event starts at 6:30 PM. On Saturday and Sunday, NAS Kingsville gates open to the public at 8:00 AM and the air show midway opens at 9:00 AM. Performances begin at 11:00 AM and end by 5:00 PM each day. Please note if you are traveling from Corpus Christi: FM 70 (Chapman Ranch) is closed east of Bishop for bridge replacement. TxDOT recommends using FM 665 to Driscoll or Highway 44 to Robstown to connect to Highway 77 South to Kingsville. For more details, visit http://wingsoversouthtexas.com/.
