Details

Locals and visitors from all over look forward to the annual Pensacola Beach Air Show held in the summer. The show highlights our hometown heroes — the Blue Angels — the U. S. Navy’s flight demonstration squadron stationed at Forrest Sherman Field aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola.The Blues hold several practice sessions along the beach in the days leading up to the big event on show day.

The four-day event program has been designed around social distancing in observance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for the COVID-19 virus. 

To further comply with CDC recommendations, the 2020 air show has no center point, which allows the footprint to be expanded substantially.

The modified program for 2020 will provide an air show from Park East on Pensacola Beach to Orange Beach, Ala. Fans of the Blue Angels will have an opportunity to view and hear the series of beach flyovers on July 8, 9, 10 and 11.

Each day will have similar flight maneuvers and each show will last 45 minutes, weather permitting. This expanded schedule will give the public four different opportunities to view the performances at least once.

To beat the summer heat and reduce the strain on available resources, each show day will begin at 10 a.m. with aerial displays along the beach.

On Friday, July 10, and Saturday, July 11, three civilian acts will follow the Blue Angels performance, and these will be flown over Casino Beach from 11:30 a.m. to noon.
