Blue Angels Begin 2014 Air Show Season
EL CENTRO, Calif. – The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will kick off the 2014 air show season with the squadron’s first air show of the year at Naval Air Facility (NAF) El Centro, Calif., March 15.

This marks the Blue Angels’ 68th year performing. The Blue Angels are expected to perform for nearly 15 million spectators in 2014.

NAF El Centro is the winter home of the Blue Angels and the annual NAF El Centro Air Show is the first show the Blue Angels perform in every year. Drawing a crowd of approximately 35,000, it is one of the largest events in the California Imperial Valley.

By publicly demonstrating the skills and abilities of naval aviators, the team’s goal is to inspire young men and women not just to pursue a career in naval aviation or the military, but to aspire to excellence in all areas of their lives.
