Blue An­gels soar and roar in Val­ley skies

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Front Page - Fresno Bee Staff

The Blue An­gels put on quite a show over Naval Air Sta­tion Le­moore on Satur­day, and they’re back for more Sun­day.

The team, which serves as the U.S. Navy’s flight demon­stra­tion squad, is the high­light of the Le­moore Air Show, which makes a re­turn to the base for the first time since 2011.

En­trance and park­ing are free, and gates open at 7 a.m.

Or­ga­niz­ers sug­gest that air show fans ar­rive early.

In the past, as many as 80,000 to 100,000 peo­ple have showed up for each day of the air show. A larger crowd is be­ing ex­pected this year. Up­graded seat­ing op­tions (in­clud­ing those along the flight line) are avail­able at www.lemoore­air­show.com.

Sun­day is ex­pected to be sunny and warm, with tem­per­a­tures in the low to mid-90s for the full-day, out­door event.

The show runs roughly 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the Blue An­gels’ demon­stra­tion start­ing around 2:30 p.m. The sched­ule is also packed with demon­stra­tions and fly­bys.
