Welcome to the 2021 Blue Angels' season! Since 1946, we have been privileged to represent the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps to audiences throughout the U.S. and abroad as we showcase the excitement and power of naval aviation.

Our team consists of 140 world-class, active-duty Sailors and Marines, each one bringing experience and expertise from their service in the Fleet. We are honored to serve as home front representatives of the more than 800,000 active-duty, reserve, and civilian men and women currently serving worldwide.

In our 75th year, we have been handed the baton of a world-class legacy, and it is a responsibility we do not take lightly. A relentless positive attitude, strong work ethic, and dedication to the mission are all values which have stood the test of time on the Blue Angels and have underscored every performance since the organization's inception. Each member of our team strives daily to ensure the flight demonstration exemplifies the teamwork, professionalism and precision found in every facet of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.

In this milestone year, it is our honor to salute those teams who have flown, maintained, and supported the Blue Angels through decades of service. We deeply appreciate the expertise and operational knowledge Blue Angels past and present have brought to the organization. We also look forward to safely returning to our community outreach mission and are excited to have the opportunity to debut both our larger jet platform, the F/A-18 Super Hornet, and our new logistics support aircraft, the C-130J Super Hercules.

It is a privilege to perform for you and humbling to represent our fellow service members. We sincerely hope that whether this is the first, second, or 75th year you have seen us fly, the sight and sound of a Blue Angels performance delivers pride in your defense forces, exhilaration, an appreciation for teamwork, and the inspiration to achieve excellence!

It is my pleasure to present your 2021 Blue Angels!



The team is stationed at Forrest Sherman Field, Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, during the air show season. The squadron spends January through March training at Naval Air Facility El Centro, California.

Around the country, the team serves as ambassadors of goodwill by bringing naval aviation to men, women, and children across America.

The precision flight demonstrations showcase the professionalism, excellence and teamwork found in all Navy and Marine Corps units, as well as provide the thrill and magic of flight to people each year.

Since its inception, the team has flown for more than 450 million spectators worldwide.

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a Blue Angel is the opportunity to spend time visiting hospitals, schools, and community functions in each air show city.

At schools across the country, the team takes time to interact with students and discuss the benefits of military service and the excitement of naval aviation across the country, hoping to inspire others to pursue their own dreams.

The hope is that tomorrow's leaders will be encouraged and motivated by what they see in the performance, and all the men and women that make up the Blue Angels.


The mission of the Blue Angels is to showcase the teamwork and professionalism of the United States Navy and Marine Corps through flight demonstrations and community outreach while inspiring a culture of excellence and service to country.



The Blue Angels proudly represent all the Sailors and Marines who proudly serve this great nation across the globe.
