U.S. Navy Blue Angels to Headline 2017 Wings over Golden Isles Air Show


 Las Vegas, NV (December 6, 2016) – The US Navy Blue Angels jet demonstration squadron along with recording artists .38 Special will headline the rescheduled Wings Over the Golden Isles airshow activities at the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport on March 24-26, 2017.  The official announcement for the Blue Angels appearance in Brunswick, GA was unveiled earlier today during the International Council of Air Shows’ (ICAS) convention taking place this week in Las Vegas. 

 "After months of hard work to prepare for the originally scheduled event in October, news of an approaching hurricane quickly halted efforts to bring the first air show in nearly 20 years to the Golden Isles community.  Hosting the Blue Angels for the rescheduled air show in 2017 is the best medicine available for all the disappointed fans that looked forward to the show that we were forced to cancel.,” said John Cowman, JLC AirShow Management President.  "Very few shows throughout the country and internationally receive this great honor.  We are proud to be selected to host the world’s premiere military jet team in 2017.  Bringing this patriotic opportunity of sharing the USN Blue Angels and music headliners .38 Special with the people of Glynn County and the Golden Isles has exceeded our expectations."

The Blue Angels will perform in their six-signature gold and blue F-18 Hornets known for their hard-charging demonstration of precision formation flying while pushing their aircraft to their limit.  The Blue Angels have traveled throughout the world performing before millions of spectators.  The team’s flight demonstration is amazing and their involvement in local communities is inspiring.

In addition to the Blue Angels and .38 Special, there will be a host of world-class aerobatic & warbird performers.  Other 2017 Wings Over the Golden Isles airshow performers and artists will be unveiled later in December.  Tickets purchased for the October 2016 event will be honored for the rescheduled show on March 24-26, 2017.  Advance tickets, sponsor and exhibitor information is available at http://wingsovergoldenisles.com.  Fans can register online or follow the air show’s Facebook page to receive updates for the 2017 event.
