The Blue Angels will return to Naval Base Ventura County, Point Mugu, in 2013. Their last performance at Point Mugu was eight years ago.

The Blue Angels are coming back to Point Mugu next year.

The 44th Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) Air Show at Point Mugu is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 28 and 29, 2013.

The show will feature the Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron. Based out of Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla., the Blue Angels operate the Boeing FA-18C Hornet strike/fighter aircraft.

“I am very excited to announce the Blue Angels will be returning to Naval Base Ventura County for the first time in eight years,” said Capt. James McHugh, commanding officer, NBVC. “The Blue Angels will headline the 2013 Naval Base Ventura County Air Show at Point Mugu. The Blue Angels’ aerial maneuvers will exhibit the professional qualities of the Navy personnel who fly, maintain and support the aircraft.”

The Blue Angels flew in the first air show at Point Mugu in 1960. Then called the Space Fair, the air show saw the team flying the F11F-1 Tiger.

Adm. Chester W. Nimitz ordered the creation of the team on April 24, 1946.

More detailed air show information will be released as more military flight demonstrations are confirmed.
