Blue Angels @ Nantucket, Mass.?

Tue Apr 11, 2006 7:55 pm

I see that the Blue Angels will be performing over Nantucket Island September 30 and October 1 of this year. Is this part of an on-island Air Show, or will the Blues be launching remotely from the mainland to do these shows? If that's the case, from where would they launch?

I will be seeing the Blue Angels at the Westfield (Massachusetts) Air Show in late June. Can't wait!

Message to Blue Angels: Please roar over the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport at 50 feet. No doubt waking Teddy and his illegal alien sleep-over friends up. Please.

The web site lists some other performers and a few static aircraft so I assume the show will be at the airport. The runway there is 6,300 feet. Is that usable for an F-18? If not I would assume they would launch from Otis ANGB.
