The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will make
their inaugural performance at the OC Air Show, June 13-14, 2015, over
the beach and boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland. This will be the first
time in the OC Air Show’s eight year history that the Blue Angels will
perform and they will be joined by the Breitling Jet Team and the F-22
Raptor Demo creating a triple headliner for the 2015 event!

A Blue Angels flight demonstration
exhibits the skills possessed by all naval aviators. The Blue Angels’
C-130, affectionately known as Fat Albert, begins each demonstration by
showcasing its maximum-performance capabilities during a ten-minute
performance. Following Fat Albert’s performance the six Blue Angels
F/A-18 Hornet’s will soar overhead, entering from behind the crowd and
announcing themselves with the “sound of freedom!”  You’ll see the
graceful aerobatic maneuvers of the four-jet diamond formation, in
concert with the fast-paced, high-performance maneuvers of two Solo
pilots followed by the pinnacle of precision flying, when the solos join
the diamond and perform in the six-jet Delta Formation.

The mission of the United States Navy
Flight Demonstration Squadron is to showcase the pride and
professionalism of the United States Navy and Marine Corps by inspiring a
culture of excellence and service to country through flight
demonstrations and community outreach. The team will perform 65 shows in
34 different cities around the United States during the 2015 air show
season.  The Blue Angels are based at Forrest Sherman Field at Naval Air
Station Pensacola in Florida.  The squadron spends January through
March training at Naval Air Facility El Centro, California for their
winter training preparing for the show season.  For the latest updates
