Once again the Portsmouth air show filled the skies over Portsmouth and Exeter Events and Tents was there lending a hand keeping the attendees out of the hot sun and under our beautiful tents. Anyone who has attended one of these events knows that it can get pretty hot out there on the tarmac at Pease Trade port.
The highlight of these shows is of course the Blue Angles Percussion flight team. The squadron flies the Boeing F/A-18 Hornet and the Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules. You can check out the aircraft here at this link http://www.blueangels.navy.mil/aircraft/hornet.aspx. You can also visit their official website below.
Here come the Blues! The United States Navy Blue Angels returns with their adrenaline – rushing performance to New Hampshire.
A Blue Angels flight demonstration exhibits choreographed refinements of skills possessed by all naval aviators. It includes the graceful aerobatic maneuvers of the four-plane Diamond Formation, in concert with the fast-paced, high-performance maneuvers of its two Solo Pilots. Finally, the team illustrates the pinnacle of precision flying, performing maneuvers locked as a unit in the renowned, six-jet Delta Formation.
The team is stationed at Forrest Sherman Field, Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, during the show season. However, the squadron spends January through March training pilots and new team members at Naval Air Facility El Centro, California.
We hope you could make it out to the show this years and will definitely see you all again next year because we love this stuff!!!
