DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE AERIAL DEMONSTRATION TEAM 1995 SCHEDULES

The Department of Defense jet demonstration team schedules have been officially released by the Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs. Show sites are attached.

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will perform 38 shows in 22 states and Canada. The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will perform 44 shows in 25 states and Canada.

The annual demonstration season begins in March and concludes in November. More than 210 requests were received for the jet demonstration teams. The number of requests that can be supported is limited by the length of the season, travel and training requirements, operational considerations, and seasonal meteorological conditions.

Demonstration sites are selected to support the objectives of the Department of Defense and the interests of the Armed Services with safety as the primary consideration. Performances greatly assist the recruiting and retention goals of the Services, enhance esprit de corps among uniformed men and women, and demonstrate the professional skills and capabilities of the U.S. Armed Forces to the American public and U.S. friends and allies.

The schedule for the U.S. Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights, is expected to be released in January 1995.
