BLUE ANGELS HOMECOMING AIRSHOW- Fri/Sat 8am (gates open); 9:30am (airshow begins); 1:30pm-2pm (Blue Angels fly), Naval Air Station Pensacola
The Blue Angels close out the season with their Homecoming Airshow at NAS. In addition to the air show, spectators can enjoy a collection of aircraft on display, virtual games and other attractions/displays at vendor booths, food booths, souvenir booths, and a kids’ fun-zone! Pets and coolers are not permitted. Admission and parking for all shows are free.
This morning (November 2nd) on "Gulf Coast Mornings with Kelly Bennett and Uncle Henry", we discussed a variety of topics, including the Blue Angels homecoming at NAS Pensacola Saturday.
Friday's are a bit less serious than usual on the show, which gave us a chance to get into the ins and outs of the daredevil in my personality, which apparently DOES have limits.
I've jumped with the Golden Knights, been up with the Hurricane Hunters, rappelled down the side of tall buildings for Habitat for Humanity...but when my opportunity came up to go up with the Blue Angels, I completely chickened out. This is NOT something I will be doing again, should I be fortunate enough that the opportunity comes up twice in my lifetime. Which sadly, probably isn't likely.
Full disclosure on video at 4:08...
Hey at least, when I'm chicken, I'm fearless enough to admit it! lol
