Blue Angels Homecoming, Pensacola, FL 2008
November 14-15, 2008  
The Blue Angel Homecoming is the last show that the team does every year and is performed at its home base at NAS Pensacola at the western end of the Florida panhandle.  The show is traditionally flown on Friday and Saturday with a night show on Friday evening.  As at all military bases, the events are free to the public. This year the event included warbirds in both the US Air Force Heritage Flight and the US Navy Legacy Flight with warbird aerobatic demonstrations by PT-17, SNJ and T-34.  Right next to the airshow site is The National Aviation of Naval Aviation which has an excellent collection of rare aircraft.  Being able to take in both is always a good way to end the airshow season.


The Blues finished the year with a five person team.


Joe Fagaundes from LaGrange, GA put on an excellent aerobatic routine in his SNJ.
