Blue Angels nearing opener

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Halfway through their winter training in El Centro, Calif., the Blue Angels are getting ready to begin their 2017 season March 11 with their annual start-of-season performance at Naval Air Facility El Centro. The Navy flight demonstration team arrived in El Centro Jan. 5 following a brief holiday break after the 2016 end-of-season show Nov. 11 at Pensacola Naval Air Station. This year marks the 50th year the Pensacola Naval Air Station-based team has conducted winter training at El Centro in Southern California. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 02/28/17)
