VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The Blue Angels will be making their return to NAS Oceana September 19-20, 2020, after they plan to skip Hampton Roads in 2019.

The schedule for 2020 was released recently, and Virginia Beach is one of four places in September that the Blue Angels will visit as part of their larger air show schedule, which runs from March 2020 to October 2020.

While the Blue Angels will not be here in 2019, they were in town in September 2018 for those in the area to enjoy.

The Blue Angels, the United States Navy’s flight demonstration squadron, is comprised of aviators from both the Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.

The Blue Angels have been around since 1946. The shows are used as a recruiting and marketing tool for the United States Navy.
