The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, reached a major milestone in their annual winter training, Jan. 19, when they completed their first set of training flights over the airfield at Naval Air Facility (NAF) El Centro, California. This is the first time in 2019 the Blue Angels held a full practice over the airfield, a critical step in preparing for the 2019 air show season. This is just one of many steps for the squadron on its road to the 2019 show season, which officially begins Mar. 16, with the NAF El Centro Annual Air Show. The team is scheduled to conduct 61 flight demonstrations at 32 locations across the country in 2019. For more information, including a show schedule, visit the U.S. Navy Blue Angels website.
