The Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) “Wings Over the Pacific” air show will feature the Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy’s world’s famous flight demonstration squadron.
The airshow will take place Sept. 27 and 28 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the Hickam side of JBPHH.
The Blue Angels flight demonstration will use the F/A-18 Hornet aircraft to exhibit the choreographed refinement of skills possessed by all naval aviators.
The Leap Frogs, the United States Navy Parachute Team, will also perform, and there will be demonstrations by the Blue Angels C-130 Hercules support aircraft affectionately known as “Fat Albert” and a C-17.
“Wings Over the Pacific” will also offer displays of vintage and modern aircraft, food booths and an Xtreme Fun Zone for children that will feature rides, games and more. The show is free and open to the general public. Security restrictions will be in place.
“On behalf of our Navy and Air Force community, I invite you to join our ohana for this great event,” said Capt. Stan Keeve, commander of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
“We think you will be entertained by the Blue Angels and other air show performers, and you will have an opportunity to see static displays of a variety of aircraft.”
