Blue Angels Close With Pensacola Show

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Thousands of people came to watch the Navy’s Blue Angels close out their season over the Veterans Day weekend with a show in the Florida Panhandle.

The Pensacola News Journal reports that 101,000 people watched the Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show on Saturday at Pensacola Naval Air Station.

The six-jet team’s dress rehearsal on Friday drew about 85,000 people.

Many children sitting on their fathers’ shoulders wore neon earplugs and held toy Blue Angels airplanes. U.S. military veterans also joined the crowds.

The Blue Angels are based in Pensacola. Their season begins again in March.
