Past Performers

  • Blue Angels flight demonstration in the C-130 "Fat Albert", launches the demonstration by showcasing its maximum-performance capabilities. Fat Albert begins with a low-transition takeoff maximum effort climb, sending the Hercules skyward at a 45-degree, nose-up attitude to an altitude of 1000 feet, simulating conditions in a hostile combat environment. The C-130 concludes its profile by demonstrating its maximum-effort braking capability, bringing the aircraft to a full stop in less than 1,000 feet. Shortly thereafter, you will see the graceful aerobatic maneuvers of the four-jet Diamond Formation, in concert with the fast-paced, high-performance maneuvers of two Solo pilots. Finally, the team illustrates the pinnacle of precision flying, performing maneuvers locked as a unit in the renowned six-jet Delta Formation.
  • Vicky Benzing pilot, skydiver, aerobatic competitor, and Reno racer.
