Blue Angels/Thunderbirds Release 2010(+) Schedules

Tue Dec 08, 2009 12:49 pm

The Thunderbirds have announced their 2010 schedule:

And, in a new agreement with the International Council on Air Shows, the Blue Angels have announced their 2010 and 2011 schedules:

Good news for MKE fans - the Blues are returning to the lakefront. Next year's show is much earlier - June 12/13. I suppose that this is possibly to stay away from the OSH EAA dates, but it seems more likely that the show organizers took whatever Blue Angel dates they could get.

Any info on the Blue Angels visit to Portsmouth, NH?

Is this a first?

They used to visit NAS New Brunswick but I understand that's been BRAC'd.

Now I know what day to call in sick here at the USAFA. It's always stunning to see the display underneath you.

The Blues are going to be at Sun N Fun in Lakeland, FL in 2011. That is surprising. I've only been to that show a couple of times but I never recall them having the major teams. Interesting.

It's NAS Brunswick....... Not New Brunswick. The last of the P-3's flew out last week and the airfield is now closed.

I'm thinking back and I want to say No... they have been there before.

Same for the Philadelphia area. Closest visit by either team is Atlantic City, NJ. Oh, well. Looks like another airshow-less couple of summers.

Do they also publish International schedules?

Very disappointed to learn of a Thunderbirds display in NSW, Australia earlier this year doing a small display!

Would love to see one of these guys (or even the Red Arrows or others) in Australia.

(I have seen Thunderbirds internationally in Kulala Lumpur and thoroughly enjoyed it!).

Cheers

Unfortunately, there is no separate International schedule. What you see is what you get.

The teams do occasionally schedule tours overseas - as you know from the NSW appearance ( I seem to remember some Asian dates on this year's schedule as well), but they aren't annual events.

Milwaukee is great fun in the summer - looks like it's time for a road trip to see the Blues!

Hmm,
Looks like rumors that the 2010 return of the Ft Lauderdale Air & Sea Show is not going to happen are turning out to be true.
