You can attend the practices at NAS Pensacola if you have a Department of Defense Identification Card. If you don't... Here are some great places to catch your favorite naval aviators practicing!
Navy Point is located north of Bayou Grande across from NAS Pensacola. You can catch the practice at the neighborhood park at the corner of Gibbs and Baublits.
Walmart Parking Lot (Blue Angel Parkway)
Believe it or not, many locals and visitors find out about this spot by sheer serendipity! The Blues fly directly over the parking lot and you'll get lots of clear views of them flying overhead from this location.
Perdido Kids Park
If you want to let the kids run out some energy and catch the Blues overhead, the Perdido Key Kids Park is the ideal location. Located on Gulf Beach Hwy, the park has covered picnic tables with plenty of seating and shade for your morning adventure.
If you are lucky, on Sunday evenings, you can catch them Buzz the Beach on their way back home from airshows.
