PENSACOLA, Fla. --- The Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will close the 2022 season at the Homecoming Air Show on board Naval Air Station Pensacola Friday and Saturday, Nov. 11 and 12.

A Special Operations Paratrooper team will be parachuting out of Fat Albert, the Blue Angels’ C-130 Hercules. Other acts currently expected are:
· A-10 Demonstration Team
· Yak 110
· Ladies For Liberty
· Brian Correll Air Shows
· Stearman Flight Team
· Flash Fire Jet Truck
In addition to the static displays, food and memorabilia will be available at numerous concessions stands. There will also be a Kid’s Zone for kids of all ages.
The show will start at 9:30 a.m. both days, with gates opening at 8:00 a.m. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved seating will be available for an additional fee, but guests are encouraged to bring their own seating. Handicap seating and parking will be available for those in need.
