Did you know that the Blue Angels made their debut in 1946? Then-Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Chester Nimitz created the Blue Angels to bring naval aviation to the public across the country.

Since then, the Blue Angels have been putting on exciting shows with impressive acrobatic maneuvers and formations. Not only are these jaw-dropping shows fun to watch, but they also help create greater appreciation for those who wear the uniform.

To see another show you are in luck as you are lucky enough to see them on the gulf coast.

Watch them train

As the official Blue Angels season draws to a close, you can watch them practice until mid-November. Although they travel across the country during the year, the Blue Angels return home to NAS Pensacola most weeks.

You know what they say, practice makes perfect, and to stay proficient in their impressive air show routines, the Blue Angels hold practice performances on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, March through November. Check out the full workout schedule, including free autograph sessions.

You can watch them train from the viewing area, located on the Museum Flight Line north of the National Naval Aviation Museum. Due to COVID restrictions, NAS Pensacola, Museum and Blue Angels practices are currently only accessible to those with valid Department of Defense (DoD) ID cards.

Don’t have a DoD card or know someone who does? Carefree. Often you can see the Blue Angels flying over the beaches of Gulf Shores during their training days and weekends.
