With their deafening roar and death-defying aerial acrobatics, the Blue Angels are the signature of Fleet Week for many Bay Area residents. They are returning for this year’s event after the pandemic moved the celebration online to 2020.
The Blue Angels will roar in the sky starting Thursday as they roam the area between the Golden Gate and Alcatraz Island, where their show will be focused on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The air show will also feature a United 777 performing tricks, the Navy Parachute Team, the US Air Force F-16 Viper Demonstration Team, and a host of other aircraft. The hours of operation for the air show are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 8 and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 9 and 10.
