NOTE: This is a military performance, on a military base with military aircraft and personnel. Did I mention it was military :wink: They start on the money and you need to be in your seat or at your standing position at least 30 minutes ahead of time, that is, if you want a great seat. It takes about 45 minutes plus, depending on the route you take, to get to the Pensacola Naval Air Station. You then have to wait in the car line to go through security to enter the base. You then have to drive to the area to park and then walk a fair distance to the seating/standing area. Two years ago, our family and friends waited too long to leave Navarre as we thought we were safe and we were still out on the street (not even on the base yet) when they started flying. We saw about 15 minutes of the 45 minute show. LEAVE EARLY! Take in the Naval Museum after the show...it is also free. It is a great time and will give you an incredible sense of pride in our country, the navy and the very best aviators on the planet.
