The Blue Angels Are Coming To Perform Over Oklahoma
The Navy's Blue Angel flight team has announced Oklahoma will be a stop during the Tinker Air Force Base Air Show the weekend before July 4th in 2023. Yes, it's a long way off, but to have a chance to see the most storied pilots do their thing locally is something worthy of planning a trip around.
Being that Saturday and Sunday, July 1st and 2nd will be a technical "holiday weekend," you might want to make those plans now and start booking a hotel. While the Marriot next to Bass Pro is really nice, there are several more affordable options on the Northside of Bricktown and around the downtown area that should fit most any budget. Make a weekend out of it.
I don't know about you, but when I think of the Blue Angels, I have this flashback to this old tv show from my childhood, Home Improvement. The main character gets a seat as a passenger on one of these planes and they take him up to do the thing they're most famous for. What people might not know is, the flight with Tim Allen was real, and it's one of the best things you can find on YouTube if you enjoy a little 90s nostalgia.
What a dream of an experience to have eh?
Tickets for the 2023 air show aren't yet available, they're still working to put together the 2022 air show if it's feasible. Covid still remains the #1 deterrent of fun these days.
