Ocean City Air Show with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels
June 16 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Celebrating it’s 12th Anniversary, the OC Air Show returns to Ocean City in 2019 headlined by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels! A Blue Angels performance exhibits the flying skills that all naval aviators possess. The team’s C-130, also known as Fat Albert, begins each demonstration. Fat Albert’s 10 minutes performance showcases the aircraft’s maximum-performance capabilities. Following Fat Albert’s performance the team’s six F/A-18 Hornet’s soar overhead. The Blue Angel delta formation enters from behind the crowd and announce themselves with the “sound of freedom!” The Blue Angel performance showcases the graceful aerobatic maneuvers of the four-jet diamond formation together with the fast-paced, and high-performance maneuvers of two Solo pilots. Finally, the conclusion of the performance brings together all six F-18s when the solos join the diamond and perform in the six-jet Delta formation. The wing tips of the Blue Angel jets are less than 3 feet apart in the diamond and delta formations.
Interactive simulators, exhibits and displays will be located on the streets of the boardwalk near Show Center and Inlet Parking Lot.
