No Reason to be Blue in Terre Haute this Summer
Terre Haute Air Show Featuring the Blue Angels
Nothing compares to the joy of watching the Blue Angels — the US Navy’s flight demonstration squadron — taking to the skies and performing unbelievable stunts, with the pilots maneuvering their aircraft in ways you didn’t think were possible. They’ll be part of the annual Terre Haute Air Show, being held August 18 and 19 at the Terre Haute Regional Airport.
Like every year, it will be an action-packed event that every member of the family will enjoy. The Blue Angels’ C-130, affectionately known as Fat Albert, will kick off the demonstration by exhibiting its maximum performance capabilities during a 10-minute performance. This will be followed by graceful aerobatic maneuvers by the four-jet Diamond Formation, in concert with the fast-paced, high-performance maneuvers of its two solo pilots. Finally, the team will illustrate the pinnacle of precision flying, performing maneuvers locked as a unit in the renowned, six-jet Delta Formation.
The Air Show also offers the opportunity for visitors to ride on several former US Military Aircraft that will be attending the show, for a fee. Some of the aircraft include a Redtail P-51 Mustang, TBM Torpedo Bomber, B-25 Mitchell Medium Bomber, B-17 Flying Fortress Heavy Bomber, and more.
General admission tickets are available, but if you want to upgrade to the VIP experience you’ll enjoy lunch, drinks, shade/tent, and chair. Visit https://www.terrehauteairshow.com/ or for more information regarding the War Rides call 812-877-2524.
