We have been to Pensacola many times and have always wanted to see the Blue Angels practice show. The Pensacola Naval Base is their home base and they are here a lot but we always seem to miss them. You can look up their show & practice schedule here.
The show is at 8:30 so we got up early and headed out because we wanted to get there early enough to get a good seat in the bleachers. You can also bring your lawn chairs if you want to. There are volunteers there that narrate the show and answer any questions you might have.
The show is about an hour long so be prepared ~ bring hats and a drink! We haven't seen the Blue Angels performed in about 10 years. The last time we saw them we were having lunch in the Seattle Space Needle and ended up having a birds eye view of the show! I will never forget that!
The Museum of Naval Aviation at NAS Pensacola has a viewing area for visitors to watch the team practice. The team visits the museum to answer questions and sign autographs after Wednesday practices.
We really enjoyed our time at the show and if you're ever in the area go see them and don't forget to visit the Museum of Naval Aviation too!
Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!
There wasn't any kicking and screaming from us!
