The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will return to Ocean City, Maryland on June 15-16, 2019 to headline the OC Air Show.  The 12th annual event will once again kick off Ocean City’s summer season.

 

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 together with 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.

    Great show at OC this year. Just happened to go this weekend. Thanks for reminding me of my love of the service and the wonder of its capabilites. Though I’m now old, I still want to be a pilot when I grow up.

  2. Ian Drucker says:

    I am thankful for all of the men and women that serve and make sacrifices to keep our nation safe, secure and free – Thank You to all of you! I enjoy watching the flight demonstration teams of the USN and the USAF.

    We were at the air show last year. It was spectacular. I can’t wait to go this year. I bet it will even be better than last year.
