The Santa Rosa Island Authority and air boss for the Pensacola Beach Air Show has stated that this year’s show will go on as scheduled barring any new restrictions from the governor of Florida. This is the Blue Angels’ first scheduled show for 2020.

Sounds like a few Blues flybys up and down the coast instead of a real performance. I guess it's something?

It's a four day event instead of two, and they're substantially exanding the crowd area on the beach, all in an effort to reduce the density of people there.

It doesn't really specify any changes to maneuvers. I'd hope it would be more involved, but without a center point, it would be harder to coordinate and execute safely. It still sounds like they're still strying to put on as close to a full program as possible.

PENSACOLA, Fla. (June 26, 2020) — The Santa Rosa Island Authority (SRIA) staff and air show performers have finalized the plans for the 2020 Pensacola Beach Air Show in July.

The four-day event program has been designed around social distancing in observance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for the COVID-19 virus.

To further comply with CDC recommendations, the 2020 air show has no center point, which allows the footprint to be expanded substantially.

The modified program for 2020 will provide an air show from Park East on Pensacola Beach to Orange Beach, Ala. Fans of the Blue Angels will have an opportunity to view and hear the series of beach flyovers on July 8, 9, 10 and 11.

Each day will have similar flight maneuvers and each show will last 45 minutes, weather permitting. This expanded schedule will give the public four different opportunities to view the performances at least once.

To beat the summer heat and reduce the strain on available resources, each show day will begin at 10 a.m. with aerial displays along the beach.

On Friday, July 10, and Saturday, July 11, three civilian acts will follow the Blue Angels performance, and these will be flown over Casino Beach from 11:30 a.m. to noon.
