As Blue Angels jets take to the skies and fly only a few feet from wingtip to wingtip, the crowd gets a glimpse of the skills and capabilities that all fighter pilots must possess.

The Bell Helicopter Fort Worth Alliance Air Show will feature the world-famous U.S. Navy Blue Angels Oct. 28-29 at Fort Worth Alliance Airport.

Gates are open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. both days. General admission remains free, and parking ranges from $15-$30. Premium seating options are available for purchase.

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels is one of America’s premier flight demonstration squadrons. Blue Angels performances draw more than 11 million spectators over a typical air show season. Based at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida, the Blue Angels fly six powerful Boeing F/A-18 Hornets during their tightly choreographed, high-energy demonstration — sometimes flying as little as 18 inches apart.

In addition to the Blue Angels, performers include the U.S. Air Force F-16 Viper Demonstration Team, U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight, Patriot Parachute Team, Trojan Phlyers and stunt pilot Gene Soucy with wing walker Teresa Stokes. Static displays include warbirds, military and general aircraft and helicopters.

Additional attractions include a Kid Zone, simulators, interactive exhibits, helicopter rides, food, Honor Guard Memorial and more.

Since 2006, more than $620,000 has been distributed to more than 60 nonprofit organizations. This year’s proceeds benefit local nonprofit organizations and local school STEM programs.
