The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will roar back into South Texas the last week of March to headline the 2017 Wings Over South Texas Air Show aboard Naval Air Station Corpus Christi April 1-2.
"We are planning a full day of events for both Saturday and Sunday," said Capt. Steve Banta, commanding officer, Naval Air Station Corpus Christi. "And, we are holding the air show over the water once again this year!
"We view our bi-annual air show as a base-and-community event," Banta added, "celebrating the continued partnership that we have enjoyed for more than 75 years."
All branches of the armed services and the air station tenant commands will be represented at the air show as well as numerous civilian performers.
"The line-up is falling into place as acts are signed and commitments made, and we're glad the Navy's Blue Angels will headline the show," said Lt. Cmdr. Dave Hunt, air show coordinator. "Once again, we have the U.S. Army's Golden Knights jumping into show central, as well as other military and civilian acts that will delight the young and old alike!"
On both days, there is free admission and free parking. NAS Corpus Christi's Main Gate (South Gate) will open at 8 a.m. Visitors will be directed to parking adjacent to the NASCC seawall.
Guests may also purchase preferred seating and tickets to the Wings of Gold VIP Chalet later this month. For more information, follow us on Facebook at "Wings Over South Texas Air Show" www.facebook.com/wostairshow/ or website www.wingsoversouthtexas.com or call our information line (361) 961-0033.
