The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will headline the 2018 Cleveland National Air Show presented by Discount Drug Mart, the event announced on Monday.
Cleveland will be one of 31 select U.S. cities to host the Blue Angels in 2018, doing so on Labor Day weekend (Sept. 1-3) at Burke Lakefront Airport. According to a release, the six ‘Blues’ pilots “will thrill Air Show fans with a one hour choreographed presentation that includes the graceful aerobatics of the four plane Diamond Formation and exciting high energy opposing solo maneuvers by the two solo pilots.”
“We are thrilled to host the U.S. Navy Blue Angels for their winter visit,” said Air Show Executive Director Kim Dell. “This is a great way to kick-off the 2018 Air Show season.”
