BLUE ANGELS AIRCRAFT
AT LEAST THE TYPES THEY FLEW
(MAY OR MAY NOT BE ACTUAL ORIGINAL BA AIRCRAFT)

These old Blue Angel Aircraft are now found all over the country. Many of these are found in museums, which as you probably know, could use our support not only by visiting them, but by helping fund their work in restoring and maintaining these historical aircraft and other memorabilia. (For example, it costs about $6,500 just to paint one of these planes back into Blue Angel colors.) Most of the man-hours are volunteered. Here are some for which we know the location.
