4/29/03 Practice Show With The Snowbirds
NAS Pensacola


Tim Melancon has been a good friend and donor to this website for a number of years. Besides airshows, Tim attends many of the Blue Angels practice shows and takes some great photos. He was lucky enough to catch the Snowbirds (who had escaped south away from their cold Canadian Spring weather) practicing with the Blues. These practices are open to the general public and is a neat way to see the Team's part of an airshow without the big crowds.

The schedule for practice shows is on the Website of the Current Team.

The practices take place behind the Naval Aviation Museum at NAS Pensacola. The museum provides bleacher seating, and often the pilots do sign autographs after the practice shows if time permits.
