VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The popular NAS Oceana Air Show was virtual in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and it was canceled all together in 2021.

Now Capt. Bob Holmes, Commanding Officer of Naval Air Station Oceana says the 2022 Air Show will return September 17 and 18.

He said it will again feature the famous Blue Angels who have not flown in in the show since 2018 and the theme will be "Back to the Beach."

The NAS Oceana Air Show is the Navy’s largest community outreach event in Hampton Roads, and it has been held nearly every year since 1953. It typically attracts more than 250,000 spectators during the two-day show.

A full list of 2022 show participants will be released soon.
