I found the news of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration team’s upcoming visit to Middle Tennessee as exciting, as anyone would. As John Black stated, the return of the Blue Angels to the Great Tennessee Air Show is a reiteration of the growth and prosperity of Middle Tennessee.
In the context of MTSU, I believe there should be a large amount of interest in such an event. First, I think there would be interest from the number of former and current active military members enrolled or are MTSU alumni. Also, the popularity and prestige of MTSU’s Aerospace program would garner some intrigue toward the event.
The event also looks to bring a bit of positivity as the Blue Angels return from a hiatus in 2013. I find the team’s return a note on the stabilization of matters such a government spending and budgetary limitations, which caused the cancellation of the team’s tour earlier this year.
Finally, the visit of the Blue Angels, as mentioned in the story brings a number of other attractions. The most eye-catching of these additional performers looks to be the Leap Frogs parachute team. The culmination of this grouping of interesting events is capped off as is to be held on Father’s Day weekend of 2014, making the air show a perfect family summer getaway.
The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are returning to Smyrna June 2014. People seemed to be excited that they would stop here for the air show. The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are the best of the best and it is a once in a lifetime chance to watch the show. I personally never got the chance to watch their airshow so I am excited to see them this summer. “This will be a show you won’t want to miss.” Another exciting detail is that it will be Father’s Day weekend. I think we are fortunate to be one of their stops during their season. With the team, suspending their 2013 performance that led to many cancellations this summer’s show should draw a huge crowd. The popular flight demonstration always puts on a show to remember they are renowned worldwide. This season consist of 65 shows and 34 locations and Smyrna is one of the 34 exciting locations to be able to see their performance. With it being summer time people will be able to park and get a close look up view at their amazing performance. It is exciting just to think about the routine that they will put on, the loud engines alone let you know when they are coming.
