BRUNSWICK, GA. | The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will be in the skies over Glynn County for the first time in 20 years Saturday and Sunday for the inaugural Wings Over the Golden Isles Air Show at the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport.
The entertainment opens Friday night with a twilight airshow and .38 Special concert and is a makeup of an October show that had to be canceled because Hurricane Matthew passed just offshore and prompted mandatory evacuations. Anyone who had bought general admission tickets for the October show may exchange them tickets on any of the three days, but premium seat tickets will be honored only for admission on the original nights.
There will be static displays on the ground and in addition to the Blue Angels, performers will include the Aerial Combat
Command F-22 demonstration and heritage flight team, the USSCOCOM Para Commandos, AeroShell Acrobatic Team, the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation Sky Soldiers demonstration team, a jet-powered sailplane, a P-51D Mustang and other acts.
Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. Friday and the air show begins at 6:45 followed by the concert at 9 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, gates open at 9 a.m. and flying will start at 11:30 a.m., organizers say.
General admission for Friday is $15 for all ages and free for those five and younger. Saturday and Sunday tickets are $25 for those 18 and older, $20 for those 6 – 17 and free for those 5 and younger. Reserved and VIP seating options are available online.
Free parking is available at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center which requires a walk of about 10 minutes to the main gate. There is a drop off area near the main gate for those with disabilities.
The remote parking area will not be open Friday when parking will be available only in the reserve lot at a charge of $10. Reserved parking is $20 Saturday and Sunday, and parking passes should be bought in advance because the spaces are likely to sell out before the weekend.
