It’s official! Millville Airport — America’s First Defense Airport — has once again been chosen by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron as the site to salute our military on Memorial Day Weekend 2017.

The Museum, in conjunction with David Schultz Airshows LLC, is proud to announce that the United States Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron will headline the 2017 Millville Wheels & Wings Airshow!

The prestigious U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron, which performed here in 2007 and in 2003, will return to highlight a list of military airplanes and aviation displays at Millville Airport on Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28, 2017.

“This is incredibly exciting news for Millville and all of New Jersey,” announced Russell Davis, MAAFM president. “The Museum is honored to be chosen to host the U.S. Navy Blue Angels at Millville Airport, one of just 35 performance sites nationwide and the only location in New Jersey in 2017.”

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron, consisting of six air combat F/A-18 ‘Hornet’ fighter jets, flown by America’s finest pilots, will be coming to the Millville Airshow from their headquarters at Pensacola, Florida. They will delight audiences with their gravity-defying loops and rolls performed in tight formation at hundreds of miles per hour!

While the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will headline, the Millville Airshow will also feature a growing list of airshow performers includes modern jets, military airplanes, historic warbirds and exciting aerobatic acts.

“At this point we have a growing list of sponsors to thank,” adds Davis. “It’s gratifying to see the amount of patriotism, community spirit, and support we are getting from area businesses and organizations.”
