The elite US Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron ‒ the Blue Angels ‒ will return to the Vero Beach Air Show June 25-26, 2016. Once again those blue F/A-18 Hornets will be flying over Indian River County. More than 50,000 people thrilled to the performance of this amazing jet team at the 2014 show, the biggest and best event ever on the Treasure Coast. The show will be held at the Vero Beach Regional Airport on the grounds used by our brave men and women during World War II, when it was known as the US Naval Air Station at Vero Beach.
Vero Beach is one of only 36 sites nationwide and the only site in central Florida where they will perform this year. On the days before the show, the team will perform aerobatic maneuvers from the show sequence over the show line and a one-hour practice demonstration. The Blue Angels will participate in community outreach during their stay here and sign autographs after the show. A full maintenance and support crew and “Fat Albert,” the team’s C-130 Hercules aircraft, will accompany the pilots. The Blue Angels have been flying since 1946 when Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, the Chief of Naval Operations, ordered the team established.
In addition to the Blue Angels, Vero’s air show team has put together a stellar line-up of air show acts. Rob Holland and the Shockwave jet truck will be here again. Other performers appearing include Mike Goulian, Aeroshell Aerobatic Team, Kyle Franklin/Dracula, Greg Shelton, Ed Vesely, Wing Walker Ashley Key, Misty Blues All-Woman Jump Team, Jacquie Warda, and John Black. Read all about our air show acts at our Performers web page. The show will also include static displays of amazing aircraft and a Family Fun Zone for the kids. Our vendors will offer souvenirs and delicious food and drinks. You’ll find a lot to do at the Vero Beach Air Show.
