FORT PIERCE, FLORIDA – The Vero Beach Air Show is back in 2022 with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels headlining the event April 30 through May 1 at the Vero Beach Regional Airport.
April 29 will be the first-ever night show with a limited number of tickets available.
The Blue Angels last performed in Indian River County during the 2018 Vero Beach Air Show. Since it has been a while, here’s a preview of what you can expect to happen between now and the actual show.
■ On Wednesday, April 27: Blue Angel #7 and his Maintenance Crew Chief will arrive to perform orientation flights with a media representative and a carefully selected and deserving local citizen.
■ On Thursday, April 28: Fat Albert, the C-130-J aircraft containing the Maintenance Team and equipment will arrive followed by the arrival of the remaining six F/A-18 E/F Blue Angel aircraft a short time later.
A portion of the day will be spent ensuring that the “Sound of Freedom” is clearly heard in the skies above Vero Beach as the Blue Angels spend the afternoon practicing for the weekend.
■ Friday, April 29: Will feature a full practice airshow of all performers.
There is no doubt that the Blue Angels are well-loved by Indian River County residents, Happily, the Blue Angels are equally enthusiastic about performing here.
The Vero Beach Air Show has been lauded by the Blue Angels during the annual International Council of Airshows in Las Vegas as the organization that provides the example of how an airshow should be run.
What high praise, indeed, considering that Vero Beach is the smallest venue at which The Blues perform.
