A Blue Angels performance exhibits the flying skills that all naval aviators possess. The team’s C-130, also known as Fat Albert, begins each demonstration. Fat Albert’s 10 minutes performance showcases the aircraft’s maximum-performance capabilities. Following Fat Albert’s performance the team’s six F/A-18 Hornet’s soar overhead. The Blue Angel delta formation enters from behind the crowd and announce themselves with the “sound of freedom!” The Blue Angel performance showcases the graceful aerobatic maneuvers of the four-jet diamond formation and also the fast-paced, and high-performance maneuvers of two Solo pilots. Finally, the conclusion of the performance brings together all six F-18s when the solos join the diamond and perform in the six-jet Delta formation. The wing tips of the Blue Angel jets are less than 3 feet apart in the diamond and delta formations.

      The aerial portion of the show runs from noon to 4 pm both days, with the Angels ending the show, so arriving anytime mid-afternoon should ensure you see them.

    Is it the last year of the Air Show at Stewart. Rumors I heard they were going to move it to Orange County Airport.
