The Blue Angels are back in town! The Blue Angels have made their way back to the California International Airshow Salinas to make your jaws drop. The Blue Angels have been soaring through the skies since 1946, and they consist of 6 pilots all flying in the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. The Blue Angels showcase the pride and professionalism of the United States Navy and Marine Corps by inspiring culture of excellence and service to our country through flight demonstrations and community outreach. Salinas is proud to host these great pilots once again.
