The team is stationed at Forrest Sherman Field, Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, during the air show season. The squadron spends January through March training at Naval Air Facility El Centro, California.
Around the country, the team serves as ambassadors of goodwill by bringing naval aviation to men, women, and children across America.
The precision flight demonstrations showcase the professionalism, excellence and teamwork found in all Navy and Marine Corps units, as well as provide the thrill and magic of flight to people each year.
Since its inception, the team has flown for more than 450 million spectators worldwide.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being a Blue Angel is the opportunity to spend time visiting hospitals, schools, and community functions in each air show city.
At schools across the country, the team takes time to interact with students and discuss the benefits of military service and the excitement of naval aviation across the country, hoping to inspire others to pursue their own dreams.
The hope is that tomorrow's leaders will be encouraged and motivated by what they see in the performance, and all the men and women that make up the Blue Angels. (Description Credit: https://www.blueangels.navy.mil)
