2017 NAS Oceana Air Show (Virginia Beach, VA) - Sept 15-17

Post by awal2049 » Sun May 28, 2017 3:20 pm

Master Jet Base NAS Oceana in Virginia Beach, Virginia will host their annual air show this year on September 15-17. On Saturday Evening, there will be a performance on the waterfront at Virginia Beach called "Beach Blast" which will feature some acts in the air and on the ground. Usually, performer information doesn't get released until later, but this year they've already confirmed several great acts. Here is the current list:


Blue Angels

F/A-18C Hornet Demo

F/A-18F Super Hornet Demo

Navy Air Power Tac Demo (Hornets, Super Hornets, Growlers)

F-16 Viper Demo

Heritage Flight (P-51, F-16)

Gene Soucy (Biplane)

Bill Stein (Edge)

Dan Buchanan (Hang Glider)

Eugene Nock's Batcopter

Jerry Conley Vampire Airshows

Bill Leff (AT-6)

Warrior Flight Team (2x L-39)

Flash Fire Jet Truck

Black Daggers

Skydive Suffolk

Mach 1 Production

Firewalkers Pyro



Beach Blast:

Super Hornet afterburner demo

Black Daggers

Blue Angel Pilots introduction

Concert


I don't think I'm going this year, as I have already seen all of these performers in the past year, but I encourage anyone who hasn't been to this legendary air show to go. More info here:

I edited your post just to add NAS Oceana in the thread title because I think that's how just about everyone knows it. :lol:

Always a big show on the East Coast and it usually attracts some national attention. Thanks for putting the info out there!

Oceana just isn't what it used to....No variety in current Navy with the Hornets, Super Hornets and Growlers....unless you are a Hornet lover not a very exciting show.

Up until the end of the Tomcat era in 2006 I used to go almost every year. Hope they have a great show again someday, but for now not on the list.

Not many shows give you a view like this. Always a show with alot of afterburner packed into it.

What is the "VFC-12 CoC"?

Is that the "Change of Command"?

Is that in the air?
