Blue Angels Return to LA County Air Show

Mar 20, 2014 No Comments by

Some of the world’s finest aircraft is set to take over the skies above California’s Antelope Valley this weekend.

KNX 1070′s Brian Ping reports the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will arrive at Gen. William J. Fox Airfield in preparation for the Los Angeles County Air Show.

While the Air Force typically performed about 1,000 flyovers annually before the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels ceased performing last April, the sequestration cuts in 2013 forced the cancellation of about 2,800 military outreach events nationwide. But with 68 performances scheduled for this season, show organizer Dennis Dunbar said the pilots – and the public – are ready for the Angels’ official comeback.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
