I’m “Admiral” Patel, and I’m feeling the need for speed in this event!
The Blue Angles are the oldest active flight demonstration team in the world, which date back to 1946, to attract new recruits to the United States Navy. This elite team showcases the talents of some of the finest pilots in the world. Some of the maneuvers demonstrated by the Blue Angles put pilots as close to a few feet apart at high speeds.
As someone planning to commission in the Navy soon, I thought it’d be great if we could get some community members to participate in a virtual Blue Angles airshow.

- Though this is on the casual server, maintain professionalism as you’re representing the military.
- During the airshow, have a Discord voice channel open to properly communicate with fellow pilots and avoid accidents. Announce your intentions prior before making them!
- A few days before the event, I will assign each pilot their specific role for the event. It will be their responsibility to follow these roles to avoid any mishaps.
- Have fun!
