Yes, the Blue Angels will be a part of the “Wings Over the Pacific” airshow that is coming to Hawaii in September. The air show will take place September 27th and 28th at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
While the Blue Angels are always the main draw for most that isn’t all the airshow will include. There will be several static displays as well as live demonstrations for all to enjoy.
Displays will include both vintage and modern aircraft, food and merchandise booths and an “Xtreme Fun Zone” for kids. Looks like they are covering just about everyone here.
According to the air show’s website, there will be several aerial performances including dives, climbs and banks by the Blue Angels’ C-130 known as “Fat Albert” and an Air Force C-17 cargo carrier, as well as the parachuting prowess of the Navy’s Leap Frogs.
Static displays will feature a KC-135 Stratotanker, B-52 Stratofortress, P-3C Orion, F-104 Starfighter, Hawker Hunter and A-4 Skyhawk.
The Coast Guard is also expected to have an HH-65 Dolphin helicopter and rescue C-130 airplane. The Army is bringing a Stryker armored vehicle. An RQ7 Shadow unmanned aerial vehicle also will be part of the static display.
The Wing’s Over the Pacific airshow is shaping up to be quite a hit and should attract people from all over the island like it usually does.
The Blue Angels
The Blue Angels are always the big attraction and draw for most when it comes to airshows, especially here in Hawaii.
The Blue Angels performed at the old Barbers Point Naval Air Station in 1995, and then skipped coming to Hawaii for almost a decade. They finally returned to the islands again in 2004 when they performed at the Kaneohe Marine Corps Airbase.
The Windward side of Oahu was the Blue Angels backdrop again in 2007, 2010 and 2012. If you go look at the Blue Angels schedule it shows that they are set to return back to Kaneohe Bay on October 17th and 18th of 2015.
The Wings Over the Pacific airshow is open to the general public for free, though you can purchase premium seating. This seating usually gets you closer to the demonstration action and will more than likely provide shade.
