    What about Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, NV ???
    Nellis AFB did not have an air show in 2018…
    Thank you…

    • Larry Placido

      Jamey, the Nellis Air Show is now every other year. That’s been the trend lately with a lot of the military shows. It was supposed to start in 2017, but that was the 70th Anniversary of the USAF, so it wasn’t cancelled.

  2. Pat Waddle

    Advise ticket sales for Ocean City, Md, Look forward to seeing the Blue Angels and sharing time with you.

    Boy Scout troop 777 would like to attend the El Centro show, is there camping on base.

    • Fran

      You should contact the base directly and possibly a local Scout Troop. Great idea! Have fun!

  4. Karina

    When you guys are coming to Ohio??? I’m dying to see you again!!! Please.. please.. please!! Consider Cincinnati, Ohio!!! ✈️

  5. Ida McCullam


    I would like one know if civilians could ride on one of these jets and if so what is the price and procedures. Please my husband is a true trill seeker and I would love to make this happen for his birthday. I can be reached via email @
    Please and thank you for your time.

    • Larry Placido

      Ida, you can’t buy a ride for the Blue Angels nor the Thunderbirds. The only ones that usually get rides are media people and people that get invited to do so. I know so as I shoot for a media organization. Even then, at each stop, there are limited seats. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but most people like you and I, sadly won’t get that chance.

  6. Richard Jones

    How do I purchase tickets to specific Blue Angels air shows? Missed the show in Houston because of the weather.

    • Larry Placido

      You can get tickets (to the specific shows) as the show draws nearer, I’d check the appropriate websites.

  7. Susan M Kerr

    We wwill be in the Pensacola area the last 2 weeks of February. Will it be possible to watch the Blue Angels practice during that time?

    Thank you,

    I thought you might like to see how a small Texas Panhandle town celebrates a hometown boy who has been chosen to fly in the #2 Blue Angels position during the 2019 season. The URL goes to a Facebook page I manage that highlights Canadian High School extracurricular activities. I also volunteer to shoot the coaches play clips (game film) for our state class football program, hence my close connection to do these projects. On a more personal note, our youngest daughter was in the same school class and friends with Lt. Haley’s sister and obviously we have know his family for many years. This is small town America and everyone knows everyone. As for Lt. Haley’s recent success as a naval aviator, he is one of many CHS students (as small as this system is) that have excelled as PhD holders, one former West Point Knight football letterman, now an Army Ranger 2LT, and many other professionals in their field.

    Best pilots in the world. I worked at Boeing and when pilots came to pick up there new airplanes for the airlines I always could tell which ones were former Naval Pilots. Wow they could really fly when I flew with them on test flights. So sharp in their skills. So proud to have been able to fly with them.

  10. Adil

  11. Johnny R Jones

    Just found out the Blue Angels has their off week while Navy Week is in Wichita, Ks! So sad.

  12. Tab S.

    I was told at 2017 at the great state of Maine Air show,that they coming back 2019… & I was assured the rumor in 2017 that the 2017 for “Maine” was not last show for us… Yet I don’t see the August 23-25 2019 date that should be for Maine… I pray I just didn’t see date or?differ date?… My family goes a all out to give me a Blue Angels Birthday party per year of Maine shows, & of my$ flightline ticket as my Birthday present$ which my Birthday was just Jan.23rd which is why this year I didn’t go anywhere or out beyond family dinner at their home cuz I never wanna miss the year you come… I was told by captain in 2017 this was Maine year…respectfully saying i just pray it still is just because it’s always been my ultimate passion…& I come from a family of veterans & I just don’t wanna miss it…

  13. Rhonda Pappas

    I was just wondering if the Blues will be in Orange Beach the week of September 9. I have been a fan for 60 yrs,my parents started taking me when I was 2 to the-air shows. My favorite were always the Blue Angels! Such wonderful memories!
    Is there ever a chance to me or get pictures or autographs w the pilots. I have had Ovarian Cancer since 2016.
    I chemo to many times to count and now in remission after 6 months and one occurrence. It would def be something on my Bucket List.
    Thank you,
    Rhonda Pappas

    • RyanS

      Rhonda, the Blue Angels will be in St. Louis on Sept 7-8 and then return to Pensacola for the following 10 days or so


    looking to find out info/tickets etc for Beaufort, sc show in april 2019

  15. Brenda Little

    Having trouble finding practice start dates2019. If they are performing March 16 are they practicing in Pensacola before 16th?

  16. Richard McGinley

    The state I live in is PATHETIC !!! Although we are extremely fortunate enough to have the Top, Air National Army/Guard in the Nation still living & based right here amongst us &
    PROTECTING US here in S.Burlington, Vermont, calledTHE BAD-ASS GREEN MOUNTAIN BOYS”! Which technically is the 158th Fighter Group (Also the 134th Fighter squadron) who give us a weekly, sometimes a daily Air-show all of our own, the Acrobatic & Precision Pilots of the T-Birds & the Blue-Angels, NEVER give us the pleasure of coming to Vermont to give us their incredible Air-show !!! NEVER ! The last time I saw the Blue-Angels here in Vermont, was back in 1990’s !!!! And they have NEVER returned ! The T-Birds flew here in 2016 & they ROCKED THE HELL OUT OF OUR BIGGEST CITY,
    Burlington, Vermont ! IT WAS SO BADASS as the T-Birds flew about 700 feet over the city in full Afterburn ! THAT WAS SOOOO LOUD that I WANTED MORE !!!!!! And I’m
    surprised it didn’t shatter some
    windows in the City’s business buildings ! Ha ! Ha ! My father was Group-Commander back in the 70’s here @ The Green Mountain Boys. And they were flyin’ the F-102 Delta-Daggers. That would max out at Mach-1. But my old man would literally fly 500 feet over our neighborhood (S.Burlington) and he’d light his afterburner & EVERY window in our neighborhood would SHAKE & RATTLE loudly !!! Ha ! Ha ! We had a pool in our backyard, so as kids, if I wasn’t ridin’ my mini-bike over to the Base amd hangin’ out w/my Dad….watching him brief or debrief his pilots, or gawking at his Fighters in their hangers (where I’d park my “bad-ass” Sears mini-bike next to his Green-tipped elevator F-102, and dream !) THOSE WERE THE DAYS. Boy
    would I do anything to go back to them again. Today our F-16 fighters are preparing to phase out this Spring for the new F-35 that is taking their place here at the Green Mountain Boys Army/Air-National Guard Base. CANT WAIT to see & watch those F-35’s flying over Vermont, and protecting our skies & our Country ! GOD BLESS OUR ARMED-FORCES AND
    THE MEN & WOMEN WHO COMPRISE ALL OF THEM !!!! Anyway, Blue-Angels, please come back to Vermont, and WOW US !!!

    Miramar Airshow looks like it has been cut back to 2 days. That has traditionally been a 3 day show.

  18. Maury Giles

    Ryan – we can’t be there on the 16th, but we are coming through the area prior. Is it possible to catch some of the practices leading up to the 16th?

    • RyanS

      Not sure what event you’re referring to, but the team will typically practice the day before any public show

    • Patti Richards

      Will be in your area the week of the Pensacola Beach Air Show, July 13, 2019. Was wondering if there will be a practice day ahead of the show, during that week? I did see the 2019 Practice schedule, but it stated July 16, three days after the air show, which I am hoping was a typo error.
      Our family LOVES the Blue Angels!!!
      Thank you!

      • RyanS

        The team will practice over the beach in the days leading up to the show, probably Thursday and Friday.

  19. Patsy Daniell

    Where can I find practice schedule dates for Pensacola for spring 2019

  20. Mike Remsberg

    Your schedule says Sun N Fun April 6-7 but Sun N Fun says 4,5,6 and 7th. Which is correct? Thanks.

    • RyanS

      The Blues will only *officially* be performing on Saturday and Sunday, but they will fly “practices” during the airshows on Thursday and Friday. Thursday may be simple flybys or a full show. Friday will be a full show.

  21. Kim Zompakos

    Any chance of finding out what time you will be flying in the Kansas City Air Show?
    We will be bringing our grandchildren of all ages and we don’t want to miss because someone is napping! Thanks for your service!

    • RyanS

      We aren’t connected to the team, but you should expect them to perform at the end of the show, likely taking off at 3 or 3:30ish. That’s a rough guess based on typical airshow schedules

  26. Roy Brewer

    I’ve been to a lot air shows, but there is nothing like the Pensacola Beach air show. Its like being there !

  27. Sammy Orenthsco

    Hoping to see the Blue Angels in DC this evening. Had my Blue Angels Blend coffee this morning to revvv me up! See you all tonight.

    • RyanS

      No tickets required, just get to the beach EARLY to beat the crowds!

  30. Linda

    with the weather on the coast, do you think the Blue Angels will do their show on July 13, ’19?

  31. Debbie Hatcher

    I’m trying to find out where to buy tickets for the Nov. 2-3, 2019 Blue Angel’s air show at Moody AFB. Can I get a number to call,? Thsnk you

    • RyanS

      Since that show is on a military base, general admission to the show will be free and not require a ticket. I can’t find a site with more information, but VIP tickets should be available for purchase once the date gets closer

  32. Kim THOMPSON

    I thought I saw that you will be in va beach in September 2019 on an updated schedule….is this true?

    • Ivana Kellaher

      Do the blue angels send out email notifications? If so, can I get on the list? Thank you, Ivana

  33. Melissa Dearman

    When is the air show in November? One page stayed the 11-12 of November and another one states the 5-7. We want to plan a trip but need to know the exact dates of the air show.

    • RyanS

      There are multiple airshows in November. The Blues will be flying at these:

      November 2-3: Thunder Over South Georgia – Moody AFB, GA
