U.S. Navy Blue Angels to Headline 2020 Air Show

Cleveland will host the U.S. Navy Blue Angels as headliners of the 2020 Cleveland National Air Show presented by Discount Drug Mart.

Each show day the six “Blues” demonstration pilots will blaze across the skies in their dark blue and yellow-striped F/A-18 Hornets. The Blue Angels flight demonstration exhibits choreographed refinements of skills possessed by all naval aviators. It includes the graceful aerobatic maneuvers of the four-plane Diamond Formation, in concert with the fast-paced, high-performance maneuvers of its two Solo Pilots. Finally, the team illustrates the pinnacle of precision flying, performing maneuvers locked as a unit in the renowned, six-jet Delta Formation.

Don’t forget…this spine tingling performance begins on the ground in front of Air Show spectators with a highly choreographed “walk down” preflight routine as the Blue Angel pilots climb into their F/A-18 Hornets, start them up and taxi out for take-off.  And stick around after the show for the Blue Angels autograph session.

Cleveland is among 29 select U.S. cities chosen to host the U.S. Navy Blue Angels in 2020.  For more information, click here.

Executive Director Receives Women in Air Shows Award

Kim Dell, Executive Director of the Cleveland National Air Show, was recognized at the International Council of Air Shows annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada as the first recipient of the Women in Air Shows Award. The Air Show Network (ASN) launched a monthly award to recognize women who advance the air show business as a professional career path for women. To celebrate each awardee, ASN will donate $1,000 in her name to the Bob Hoover Academy, founded by Sean D. Tucker. This scholarship will then sponsor a deserving young woman to learn how to fly.  For more information, click here.
