FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
San Francisco February 8, 2016
Yesterday, the Blue Angels flew over Levi Stadium to kick off Super Bowl 50. The next time you can watch them in the Bay Area will be in San Francisco for Fleet Week October 3-10, 2016. We are expecting another sold out show with the Blue Angels headlining the air show. Flying their six blue and gold F-18 Hornets, the Navy’s Blue Angels will again be putting on a dramatic, high speed, thrilling performance over the San Francisco Bay.
The air show will include some new and exciting additions to our lineup to be announced in the coming months.
Along with the Blue Angels, the popular Parade of Navy Ships returns. Get front row seats to watch the San Francisco Fire Department’s Guardian dramatically spouting water under the Golden Gate Bridge as it leads the parade of ships.
Tickets go on sale Friday, February 12th, 2016 at 9AM PST and provide an unobstructed view of all the action. The Fleet Week Air Show is a free show and visible from most areas on the waterfront, reserved seats offer the best views along with the narration broadcast.
As part of the Fleet Week’s Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response mission, there will be a military Humanitarian Relief Village showcasing what both our military and civilian response teams are doing to get themselves and the community ready in case of a disaster. Visiting ships’ crews will be participating in training exercises with local first responders.
