Tuscaloosa will again host the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels on April 14 and 15, 2018, the city announced Thursday afternoon.
This will mark the fifth time the the six F/A-18 Hornets have performed at the Tuscaloosa Regional Airport since 2009.
“The Blue Angels deciding once again to come back to Tuscaloosa is a testament to our engaging, supportive community,” Mayor Walt Maddox said in a statement. “The community, volunteers and partnering agencies take great pride in our regional shows.”
The U.S. Navy flight demonstration squadron last flew in Tuscaloosa in 2015, when they performed at the Tuscaloosa Regional Airshow and did a flyover above Bryant-Denny Stadium.
