Blue Angels & Thunderbirds release schedules up to 2020

LAS VEGAS | The USA’s two big jet teams, the Thunderbirds and the Blue Angels, have released their schedules for 2019 and 2020.

The announcements were made at the International Council of Air Shows Convention in Las Vegas.

In an extremely rare turn of events, both teams will join together and perform at the same aishow at Joint Base Andrews near Washington DC this May. The two teams are not usually permitted to fly at the same event.

The Thunderbirds have two overseas show in 2019: the Abbotsford International Airshow in Canada and F-AIR in Colombia. In 2020, they will head abroad once, to Airshow London in Canada.

The Blue Angels will display abroad once in each year, both times in Canada. In 2019 they will fly at the Atlantic Canada Airshow, and in 2020, at Cold Lake. However, 2020’s trip may change as the Cold Lake Airshow’s dates could be moved several weeks forward.

They finish the 2020 season around three weeks ealier than usual. It has been speculated this may be to allow the team time to transition to the Super Hornet in time for the 2021 season.

New F-35A Demo Team to perform at airshows in 2019

LAS VEGAS | The USAF F-35A Lightning Heritage Flight Team will transition to a full demo team next year, it was announced today.

The announcement came at the International Council of Air Shows’ annual convention in Las Vegas.

The team will fly at 13 US airshows and one in Canada next year.

Since 2016, the USAF has operated an F-35A Heritage Flight team, but not an F-35A Demo Team. The new patch indicates a full demonstration team is on the way next year, meaning the aircraft would become the fourth such type to fly full solo demonstrations in the USAF. The others are the F-22A Raptor, F-16C Fighting Falcon and A-10C Warthog.

The first full F-35A demonstration was performed by Lockheed Martin at the Paris Airshow in June 2017. At the time, it was stated that this would be a precurser to full USAF demonstrations the following year, although these did not materialise. Instead, however, the Heritage Flight team did perform a small number of mini-demonstrations this season, including at the Royal International Air Tattoo and the Chicago Air & Water Show.
