U.S. NAVY BLUE ANGELS

 blues.png


Don't miss this opportunity to see the Blue Angels! The world-famous U.S. Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron, formed in 1946, is the nation's oldest formal aerobatic team. The Blue Angels' jets are flown by world-class demonstration pilots. The "Blues" still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in the inaugural 1946 season — and have performed for more than half a billion spectators since their first flight. The Blue Angels' mission is "to showcase the pride and professionalism of the United States Navy and Marine Corps by inspiring a culture of excellence and service to country through flight demonstrations and community outreach." We're honored to host them as our headline performers.



HELPFUL AIRSHOW TIPS

REMINDERS AND SUGGESTIONS

  • One ticket per vehicle.

  • You can have as many people as the number of seat belts in your vehicle. This is for safety reasons as well as your group's viewing enjoyment.

  • Traffic leaving Chennault after the airshow is very heavy and long delays may occur. Plan accordingly. Please take your time leaving the airshow and visit some of the vendors on your way out. And make sure you take that last restroom break before you sit in traffic!

  • Food and drink vendors will be set up throughout the grounds. Attendees may bring outside, prepared items to eat. No cooking or heating of food is allowed. No glass containers.

  • We adhere to social distancing and other health measures and recommendations currently in place by area and state officially and public health professionals. Even with these safeguards, please note that under Louisiana law, there is no liability for an injury or death of an individual entering the Chennault International Airport property. If such injury or death results from the inherent risks of contracting COVID-19, you are assuming the risk by entering the premises. We will balance our dual goals of having healthy, safe tailgaters and presenting an exciting airshow.
