Air show performers will include the U.S. Navy Blue Angelsand other military and general aviation performers who will be based and utilizing the North Field at Oakland International Airport. The Blue Angels is a flight demonstration squadron of the United States Navy. Formed in 1946, the unit is the second oldest formal aerobatic team in the world, after the French Patrouille de France, formed in 1931. This will be the seventh year that the Blue Angels have used OAK as their home base for the event.

The Blue Angels will hold public events throughout the week. During practice sessions and the air show demonstrations, airport neighbors and those along the Bay shoreline will experience an unusual level of aircraft activity and noise.
