For those who served in the RVAH Community, their families, and friends!
Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show is held at Pensacola Naval Air Station, Florida, on Friday and
Saturday, November 11& 12, 2011. Gate admission is free. Gates open at 8 am each day.
The show begins at 9:45 am, with the Blues scheduled to fly around 2 pm.* The pilots do
sign autographs after the show. Over 100,000 people are expected to view the show daily.
Visitors are directed to the air field parking from both gates, but are encouraged to use the
shuttle parking lot to avoid very long walks. Buses will make the rounds, taking patrons to
and from the air show site. Traffic is well handled and clears the base easily after the show.
The show includes static displays of aircraft of all types, food, beverage and vendor booths,
virtual reality experiences and other attractions that make this show a favorite excursion for
folks from all over the country. There will be a Kids' Zone, virtual games and bungee jump to entertain the children. Home Depot will have a Kids Workshop Area with craft projects.
For those who have never attended an air show, be advised the aircraft can be VERY noisy
and young children need protection for their ears. It can also be windy on the tarmac and
layers of clothes are recommended. The temperature usually ranges between 60-70 degrees.
The Friday Night Air Show will be open to the public as well as to sponsors and
the military for whom the sponsors have helped fund this show. Patrons can buy
combo reserve seating tickets for both day and night shows.
