We’ve got to admit, the Blue Angels are one of our favorite airshows of the year. Sure, the Thunderbirds are awesome too and local airshows showcasing vintage warbirds are cool, but there’s something about the Blues that makes our hair stand straight up.
Oh wait, is it because they’re a formation of 6 killer jets flying within a foot and a half of each other? Yeah, that might be it.
To add more credit to their airshows, they’re not only extremely good (that in itself is an understatement) but also fly an incredible amount of shows per year. They typically fly 70 shows in 30 cities around the United States. During the winter, they have two practice sessions per day, six days a week. They’re sure not messing around.
Since around 11 million people see them every year, we figured we’d tell you when their new schedule comes out, which is now. Check it out below and make sure you don’t miss them when they’re near you.
We’ve also added one of our favorite Blue Angel clips at the bottom here. It’s a sneak pass done in Florida back in 2015 when the jet wash ripped up all the umbrellas and shelters on the beach. It’s pretty funny.
