Welcome from the Commanding Officer
Welcome to the NAS Pensacola Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show Website!On behalf of all the men and women of NAS Pensacola, “The Cradle of Naval Aviation”, it is my distinct pleasure to invite you to our 2014 NAS Pensacola Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show being held aboard the installation on November 7, 8 and 9, 2014. It is indeed an honor to share our base with you where you will experience the highest levels of pride and professionalism in the execution of our spectacular airshow and open house event.
This event is our way of thanking you for your continued support throughout the year and offers an excellent opportunity for you to tour the flight line and get a close-up look at some of the people, aircraft and capabilities of the most powerful military in the world.
This year, NAS Pensacola is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Established in 1914, NAS Pensacola was the first air station commissioned by the Navy for the training of aviators in the infancy of Naval Aviation. The 2014 Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show will be the center piece of this year-long celebration. It will feature a variety of performers showcasing the best in both military and civilian aviation, of course highlighted by the final 2014 performances by our home based Blue Angels. We are honored to have the privilege of providing you the chance to meet and interact with the best and the brightest young men and women that our country has to offer.
Additionally, we are inviting everyone to see the unique entertainment experience that is the Friday Night Air Show, complete with night time aircraft and performers capped off by the largest fireworks display in the Pensacola area.
A couple of reminders for all you returning NASP Airshow veterans; the airshow this year starts with the Night Show on Friday night, and in a change from the Friday/Saturday day shows in the past, this year the day performances featuring the Blue Angels are on Saturday and Sunday.
I am sure you will enjoy this outstanding family event and look forward to seeing you at the 2014 Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show.
