The Blue Angels are returning to the St. Louis area. This weekend on September 11-12 from 9:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m., you can take in an air show at Scott Air Force Base. The show is free and open to the public with free parking as well.
Up until recent years, Labor Day brought air shows to the Chesterfield area. During these air shows, the Blue Angels were known to make an appearance from time to time. Their spectacular air shows would bring crowds from all around the St. Louis area.
Flight is a fascinating topic to most children and a live, up close air show from the US Navy’s Blue Angels is never a disappointing experience.
