The NAS JAX Air Show is finally here
The NAS Jax Air Show roared through Jacksonville after it was canceled last year.
Action News Jax was at NAS Jax all morning. This is where the Angels got their first wings in 1946.
The US Navy Blue Angels are back, bigger, better and stronger than ever.
“We come here for the Blue Angels. My husband is a big fan of the crew and he loves watching their demonstrations,” says Lacey Carter.
Spectators secured a front row seat for a number of skilled drivers and the famous Blue Angels. They showcased some of their new air show features including the F-18 Superhornets.
“We arrived around 9am and came from Melbourne,” says Beshawn Sands.
To add to the fun, NAS Jax had a number of things to do from carnival food…
“Corndogs and funnel cakes,” says Beshawn Sands.
At tents selling t-shirts and soft toys, more fun for the kids. Check out these cool bouncy houses and this one is shaped like a rocket.
With all these attractions going on, is there anything you can’t bring to the NAS Jax Air Show? It turns out there are quite a few things and I jotted them down just for you.
