Blue Angels soar and roar in Valley skies
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.
The U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels are shown flying over Naval Air Station Lemoore during the Lemoore Air Show on Saturday.
