The Blue Angels are, of course, the main draw for this year’s Indianapolis Air Show. The U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration team is known for their awesome talent tricking airplanes in the sky. This extraordinary military team participates on the 100th anniversary of Naval Aviation. With a mission to enhance Navy and Marine Corps recruiting efforts and represent naval service in the United States, the Blue Angels are a respected part of the armed forces.

During their performance time, patrons of the Indianapolis Air Show will enjoy choreographed refinements of skills possessed by these naval aviators. Flying F-18 mere inches apart from each other while traveling up to speeds of 300 to 400 knots, these daring aviators are literally the best of the best in stunt flying.

In addition, demonstrations will be given by Viper West F-16 Demonstration Team, Billy Werth, Red Eagle Air Sports, FM-2 “Wildcat,” F4U “Corsair,” Dave Dacy and Tony Kazian, Jacquie B Airshows, Dan Buchanan, Heavy Metal Jet Team and others. These demonstrators pilot a variety of aircrafts from gliders to bi-planes. The shows will be announced by Indianapolis Air Show’s favorite voice, Rob Reider.

On the ground, peak inside some of the most impressive examples of air and space. Fighter planes include the PT-26 Cornell, the P-51D Mustang, the T-28 Trojan, the L-2 Grasshopper and others. Plus, enjoy a walk through the Kid Zone, a ride in a hot air balloon, conversation with Hoosier authors and aviators, radio controlled planes and more. This Indianapolis event offers multitudes of fun over the course of three days.
