If ya live in Southwest Florida then you certainly know the 32nd Annual Florida International Air Show took place last weekend at the Punta Gorda Airport. The show dazzled attendees with amazing aerobatics, military jet demonstrations, historic displays and other exhibits.
Thursday before the show, not only did I have an incredible flight experience with Team RV, the world’s largest air show team, but I had the honor of seeing the U.S. Navy Blue Angels team arrive AND interview Capt. Benjamin Blanton USMC, although I’m pretty sure I unintentionally insulted him. Well, he was very cool about it and it’s a story for another time, as well as my interview with him.
Did you miss the Florida International Air Show but still want to catch the Blues? View their schedule on the Blue Angels’ website (www.blueangels.navy.mil).
