LANCASTER – The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will headline the Los Angeles County Air Show, scheduled for March 19-20, 2016, at William J. Fox Airport, organizers announced.
This will be the Squadron’s first air show of the 2016 season, which begins after leaving winter training at NAF El Centro.
“We’re humbled to be able to host the Blue Angels in the Aerospace Valley once again. Between the Blue Angels and the other headline acts we will be announcing in the coming weeks, we are confident our guests will agree this year’s air show will be the most exciting and awe inspiring yet,” stated Dennis Dunbar, executive director of the Los Angeles County Air Show. “Additionally we are expecting more static display aircraft than ever before, while our ever growing STEM exhibition, forums and other exhibits will provide many hands-on opportunities for young and old alike.”
The Blue Angels demonstration will include a performance by their Lockheed C-130 support aircraft, affectionately known as ‘Fat Albert’.
The event will also feature several of the top air show performers from around the country, including high-energy aerobatics, barnstorming and various war birds. On the ground, spectators will be able to explore static aircraft displays, interact with pilots and crew members, and experience attractions and educational exhibits designed to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
