U.S. Navy Blue Angels Air Cherry Festival Air Show – July 2, 3 & 4, 2016

National Cherry Festival Takes Flight over West Grand Traverse Bay Again in 2016!

Join us for the 90th National Cherry Festival Air Show, sponsored by Cherry Capital Airport, Northern Michigan Toyota Dealers, Sam’s Club, Schmuckal Oil, AVFlight, Harbour Air, NMC Aviation, Charter Spectrum, and the U.S. Coast Guard on Saturday, July 2, 3 and 4 for three exciting air shows!

Watching from the shores of West Grand Traverse Bay? Listen live on WTCM AM 580 to hear air show commentators give minute to minute maneuvering.

U.S. Navy Blue Angels

During the aerobatic demonstrations over West Grand Traverse Bay, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels fly six F/A-18 Hornet aircraft, split into the Diamond Formation (Blue Angels 1 through 4) and the Lead and Opposing Solos (Blue Angels 5 and 6). Most of the show alternates between maneuvers preformed by the Diamond Formation and those performed by the Solos.

The Diamond, in tight formation and usually at lower speeds (400 mph), performs maneuvers such as formation loops, barrel rolls and transitions from one formation to another. The Solos showcase the high performance capabilities of their individual aircraft through the execution of high-speed passes, slow passes, fast rolls, slow tools, and very tights turns. The highest speed found at an air show is 700 mph (just under Mach 1) and the lowest speed is 120 mph.

Some of the maneuvers include both solo aircraft performing at once, such as opposing passes (toward each other in what appears to be a collision course) and mirror formations (back-to-back, belly-to-belly, or wingtip-to-wingtip, with one jet flying inverted). The Solos join the Diamond Formation near the end of the show for a number of maneuvers in the Delta Formation.

Is there a formation that the Blue Angels do called THE HAND OF GOD? Which is shaped like a hand? Saw this on facebook and it looked like it is photo shopped and looked cartoonish. Am I wrong to think this?

We've been busy this week leading up to our Homecoming Show here in Pensacola, but that won't stop us from recognizing our teammates!

We commissioned Chief Warrant Officer 2 Juan Marrero, promoted Sgt. Zackary Cate and Gunnery Sgt. Mike Burgess, and reenlisted AMEC Andrew Teague this week, so congratulate them if you see them in the crowd this weekend!

Bravo Zulu!

Congratulations! My dad was a Chief Petty Officer and where ever we were stationed we always got to watch the Blue Angels. I also enlisted and became a Wave during Viet Nam. I was stationed at NAS Corpus Christi. When I lived in Wilmington, NC the Blue Angels would do fly- bys over my house. They were so close that I could see the pilots' face. I grew up watching them and they will forever have a place in my heart!

Congratulations and welcome home! So excited for the show! Thank you for your service and spreading the love of the Blue Angels!๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโœˆโ˜ฎ
