    We have a lot of military here in New Mexico but never see the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds. So sad that NM gets passed by every time while other states have multiple visits. I live near Kirkland Air-force Base and at least I get to see the awesome jets fly over periodically. Five shows in CA 2017 and six shows in Florida 2018. Doesn’t seem fair.

      The Thunderbirds were at Cannon last year, and they are coming back in 2018!
      May 26-27: Cannon AFB, New Mexico – “Cannon AFB Air Show Air Commandos on the High Plains”

      I live in ABQ as well, and yes, it’s a drive to Cannon, but having grown up in SoCal and gone followed the airshow circuit there (when there were more bases / shows), let me say the drive is so worth it! There is not a huge throng of people, and the crowds are manageable.

      Speaking of crowds, one has to look at populations of both FL and CA, that’s where the people are, and being a public relations tool, that’s where these teams need to perform. We just don’t have the population base here in NM! (I once went to an air show at Edwards in CA where more people were there at the show, than are in the entire metro ABQ area!!)

    • How many Navy bases in New Mexico?


    I do not see a single date in either 2017 or 2018 for an appearance of the Blue Angels in the state of North Carolina! Why is that while other states get multiple visits? I want to take my grandchildren to witness the splendor of the Blue Angels, but it won’t happen if you won’t visit our state.

  6. Richard Laskevitch

    I am a member of the civial air patrol and I try to make it too as many of the shows I can

  7. Amie Parker

    Loved the Blue Angels only once in Kansas City…..wish they would come back…..good luck Brandon Hempler a Navy Blue Angel pilot… dad is in Duluth Minnesota right now watching the Blue Angels.

  8. Mulepick

    Come to Vegas! There are too many Thunderbirds around here…

  9. Juanita Byler

    Would like to see a show

    It’s always been my dream to see the Navy Blue Angels on Pensacola Beach and this year I will be there! 21 more days! They come to Seattle every year for our annual Seafair Show. My main reason I am going down to Pensacola is to see my Dad who is 79, and does not have much time left. He was a parachute rigger in the Navy and traveled with the Blues, jumping out of planes entertaining the crowds. I wonder who I can contact so my Dad can meet the Pilots? Surprise him with the treat if possible…. Mmmm…. He use to work at Whiting Field Naval Air Station in Milton, and has an accredited Naval career serving our country.

    • Very cool! Your best bet is to contact the Blue Angels directly or maybe try the Naval Aviation museum in Pensacola as they may know of some public appearances.

    Is it possible to watch the show from the naval base in Pensacola or do you need to go to the beach

    • The July show is over the water along the beach. You can watch form anywhere but I’m not sure how much you’d see. The November show is at the NAS.
