Chesapeake, VA – The Navy is contacting four property owners in the vicinity of Naval Auxiliary Landing Field (NALF) Fentress to deliver bottled water, based on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s new drinking water health advisory level for perflourinated compounds (PFC), specifically perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA).


This weekend, the NAS Oceana Air Show will showcase the best of military and civilian aviation in a free show open to the public, featuring the U.S. Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels. Gates open at 8 a.m.



This week in preparation for the 2015 NAS Oceana Air Show, Navy jet aircraft will conduct limited periods of flight demonstration training. During this training, aerobatic maneuvers will be executed directly over NAS Oceana’s airfield. Some of the high-performance maneuvers conducted during this training will be noticeably louder than normal day-to-day operations at Oceana. These practice sessions are coordinated with, and approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.
