Due to COVID-19 restrictions onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola and other naval installations across the Southeast, the 2021 Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show will be moved to Pensacola Beach. The show dates will remain Friday and Saturday, Nov. 5 and 6.
This year’s air show will be the 75th anniversary of the formation of the U.S Navy Flight Demonstration Team, also known as the Blue Angels. The Blue Angels are the oldest continuously operating demonstration flight team in the world.
Officials and representatives with Escambia County, the Santa Rosa Island Authority, Visit Pensacola and air show sponsor Kia Autosport have been working tirelessly to get the Homecoming Air Show on Pensacola Beach organized and funded in very short time.
Visit Pensacola is funding the beach air show, using excess TDT funds from the area’s banner summer tourism season to pay for the event, combined with a major sponsorship donation from Kia Autosport.
In the same fashion as the July air show, the SRIA will host the 2021 Homecoming Air Show along Pensacola Beach on Friday, Nov. 5 and Saturday, Nov. 6, with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels headlining.
In addition to the Blue Angels, there will be a handful of aerobatic and stunt plane pilots performing as well. However, specific pilots, details and times are still being planned and confirmed.
Please note: Show times are tentative and subject to change as the details are still being arranged. There will be no Sunday rain date show if Saturday’s air show is suspended or canceled due to weather.
More details about the Homecoming Air Show on Pensacola Beach will be announced as they become available. For the most up-to-date information on the Pensacola Beach Homecoming Air Show, please go to VisitPensacola.com site or click here.
