U.S. Navy Blue Angels Are Set to Perform a Fly Over EPCOT in Early May. On May 2, 2019 The Blue Angels will be performing 2 fly overs at Epcot, one of the Disney Parks at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.
The 6 pilots are expected to break formation just over Spaceship Earth, which will lead to some amazing and unique photo opportunities! This special event is in celebration of Military Appreciation Month (May) and has not happened at a Disney Park since the Blue Angels fly over Magic Kingdom in 2017.
So who are The Blue Angels? The Blue Angels are a team of 6 expertly trained and uniquely qualified pilots that fly 6 McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornets to perform drastic and extreme stunts to showcase the maneuvering capabilities of these agile aircrafts, as well as perform fly overs at major events, primarily sporting events to help boost a crowds excitement. At one point during their air show the Hornets get within 18″ of each others wingtips while staying in formation.. oh and they do that with 4 aircrafts at once!
Blue Angel Pilots go through lengthy training practices twice a day, six days a week, during a seasonal training course, then they must complete at least 120 training missions to perform the maneuvers safely and correctly. Once they have completed their training they perform in over 60 shows at 30 locations in the United States and in 2 locations in Canada annually.
I have been lucky enough to get to see one of these special aircrafts in person! I was younger back then, but this remains one of the best experience I have ever had!
If you plan on being at Walt Disney World at the beginning of May, be sure to arrive early to Epcot so you get a great spot and see this amazing fly over by The Blue Angels in honor of Military Appreciation Month. What a great and unique experience to behold!
