Blue Angels announce practice dates in Pensacola for 2019

Look up, Pensacola!

Next month, the U.S. Blue Angels will return home to the Cradle of Naval Aviation to begin their air show practices for the 2019 season.

The Blue Angels are scheduled to resume practices over Pensacola and Perdido Key on Tuesdays and Wednesdays beginning March 27. The team will practice at 11:30 a.m. on those days in preparation for weekend air shows across the country.

There is a dedicated viewing area for the practices at the National Museum of Naval Aviation on NAS Pensacola, but the Blues can be seen all over town, sometimes as far west as Orange Beach. The team will sign autographs and greet the public at the museum after Wednesday practice sessions.

The full practice schedule is posted on the Blue Angels web site, though it is subject to change without notice.

This year, the official air shows in Pensacola will take place on July 13 at Pensacola Beach and November 8-9 at NAS Pensacola.
