The U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels flight exhibition team will be featured at the SUN ‘n FUN air show in Lakeland, Florida.
This festival calls itself “A fair in the air to remember” which is quite appropriate. Celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, the annual festival has brought in the world’s top flight exhibition team, The Blue Angels.
Other top flight teams featuring biplanes and stunt planes will also be performing aerial stunts and fly-bys.
One of the most popular aspects of this airshow is that the planes will be parked on the tarmac allowing visitors to touch the aircraft and pose for photos. Some of the planes, especially the larger ones, allow visitors to get in the cockpit and have their photos taken. Obviously, this is exhilarating for kids, but adults get a kick out of it too.
In addition to stunt-planes and fly overs, there will be several WWII era military aircraft on display allowing visitors an up-close look at these marvelous machines that helped us win the war. Don’t miss a chance to see and touch a P-38 Lightning, F7F Tigercat, TBM Avenger, and F4u Corsair. Several current military jet aircraft will also be on display.
The SUN n FUN airshow is definitely fun for the whole family!
Lakeland is a small city located about halfway between Orlando and Tampa, Florida. It is right off Interstate 4, so the location is easy to find and it’s a short drive from most of the Central Florida area.
