Naval Air Station Patuxent River will continue with it’s planned 2016 Air Expo airshow on the weekend of October 29th and 30th. The show was in doubt after the US Navy Blue Angels announced this week that they would not be attending. Organizers and performers discussed the sudden cancellation and determined that they would not allow it to cancel the show as well.
The show will still feature the US Air Force F-22 Raptor demonstration team, the Nalls Aviation Sea Harrier, the Geico Skytypers, and more. Up to date information on the show can be found on the NAS Pax River Air Expo web site.
Here is the full announcement posted to the NAS Pax River Facebook page:
