The Blue Angels in Fort Worth for the Air Power Expo

This weekend will be very entertaining for anyone who loves speed and jets. The Blue Angels are in town and are ready to put on a show in North Texas.

The Blue Angels are at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth and will be a part of the Air Power Expo on Saturday and Sunday. Gates will open at 9 a.m. and the flight demonstration will begin at 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.  The event is free and parking spaces will be available for all attendees.

"We've been looking forward to this show for awhile. Our season was canceled last year, obviously, and we are so, even more excited to be back in Fort Worth this year and we're excited to come out and show the people of Fort Worth what it is that Navy aviation does," said Lieutenant Commander of the Blue Angels, Nate Barton.

The air show will include many others such as Julie Clark's Team Juice+ T-34 meator, the U.S. Navy Leap Frogs Demonstration Team and many more local legends who will be returning to the base. To see the entire list of performers who will be present you can go to the Air Power Expo website.
