BLUE ANGELS Returning to Vero Beach for 2020 Air Show
VERO BEACH, FL – Members of the Board of Directors of the Vero Beach Air Show are pleased to announce that the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Team will perform at the next Vero Beach Air Show which has been scheduled at the Vero Beach Regional Airport April 25-26, 2020.
Marty Zickert, the Blue Angels Liaison of Vero Beach Air Show, Inc., is part of the team of Vero Beach Air Show Board Members who are in Las Vegas, NV attending the 2018 International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) Convention this week. Air Show organizers from all over the world gather at ICAS each year to plan and recruit performers for upcoming air shows.
Zickert, reporting from ICAS, states ”We are delighted to welcome the Blue Angels back to Vero Beach for the 2020 Air Show. Members of “The Blues” have told us that they love Vero Beach – it’s awesome to know they’ll be back in just 16 months.”
The Blue Angels last performed in Indian River County at the 2018 Vero Beach Air Show held just 8 months ago at the Vero Beach Regional Airport. Since that time, things have quieted down in the airspace above the airport but the Blues created an exciting stir when they submitted the Blue Angels After Action Report a review of their experience in Vero Beach during the 2018 Air Show. The report, a standardized evaluative document, included glowing comments on Blues’ accommodations, amenities, the hospitality and the welcoming spirit of the Vero Beach community. Of note is a complimentary comment that the April 22, 2018 Air Show Food Fest Event “should be a model for mandatory commits. The level of public interaction in this open environment that is very family friendly is hard to beat.”
The Vero Beach Air Show is a non-profit event that is scheduled every 2 years. A portion of event proceeds benefit the Veterans Council of Indian River County, The Exchange Clubs of the Treasure Coast, the Exchange Club of Indian River, and the Exchange Club of Vero Beach. More information about the 2020 Vero Beach Air Show will be available soon.
