The general public is invited to experience two of the world’s most exciting flight demonstrations as they soar in the skies over Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam during the Wings Over the Pacific air show on Sept. 27 and 28.

The U. S. Navy Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornets and the U. S. Air Force F-22 Raptor demonstration team will be among the featured air show performers during the two-day air show, which is free and open to the public. The event opens at 10 a.m. and runs until 5:30 p.m.

The Blue Angels will display their precision formation flying and aerobatic demonstrations. The F-22 demo team will offer a rare performance, one of only 20 air shows in North America in 2014.

The Navy’s parachute team, Leap Frogs, will launch the air show with a flag jump after the opening ceremony at 11 a.m. These air acts and more will perform throughout the day, culminating with the Blue Angels in the late afternoon. All acts are subject to weather conditions.

Featured historic aircraft will include the vintage warbird SNJ (T-6), 1928 Pietenpol Air Camper and Hawaiian Air 1929 Bellanca. These and other military and civilian general aviation aircraft will be on display.

The air show will offer food, beverages and merchandise booths for purchase and an “Xtreme Fun Zone” with rides, games and more for kids.
