Blue Angels accentuate Naval Academy Commissioning Week

Listen to this article

Poseidon must have pulled some strings yesterday with the capricious weather gods! For the first time in nearly a week, the skies above the US Naval Academy in Annapolis were welcoming enough to stage an air demonstration by the legendary Blue Angels.

Now in their 72nd year of operation, The Blue Angels mid-week presentation is one of the highlights of the festivities surrounding the US Naval Academy Commissioning Week.

Flying six F/A-18 Hornets (along with other support aircraft) the Blue Angels team consists of 130 active-duty Sailors and Marines. Together, the celebrated group represents the US Navy and Marine Corps to audiences around the world.

The team will also be on hand this Friday morning at around 10 a.m. to do a Graduation Ceremony fly-over of the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
