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.
