On July 15, 2006, the Navy Blue Angels performed their homecoming air show at Pensacola Beach. As every year, the beach was packed. The show started about 10 am, but we arrived about seven in the morning. They do the air show once a year since the Blue Angels are based at Pensacola Naval Air Station. This was our first year to see the airshow over the beach. We really enjoyed it. We have never seen a beach so packed with people. Patience was a must. Here is a photograph showing just how packed the beach was for the airshow. Click on the photograph to view the entire gallery.
