• FSX Blue Angels To Perform At RAF Fairford

    The FSX Blue Angels, announce their performance at the RAF Fairford, UK Air Show

    Pensacola, FL May 21, 2013: The FSX Blue Angels, announce their performance at RAF Fairford Air Show, on Saturday May 25, 2013, starting at 12:30PM EST. This will be the third performance of the season for the FSX Blue Angels.

    The FSX Blue Angels travel across the Atlantic to the United Kingdom, to perform at the RAF Faiford Air Show. RAF Fairford was constructed in 1944 to accommodate British and American troop carriers and gliders that would be used during the D-Day invasion of Normandy. After the war, the base experienced many transitions until 1950 when it was transferred to the U.S. Air Force for strategic bomber operations. Work commenced immediately to construct a 10,000-foot runway, which today, is the longest in the United Kingdom. In 1979, the U.S. Air Force deployed a squadron of KC-135 Stratotankers which would played a major role in supporting the attack on Libya in 1986. RAF Fairford is a fully functioning forward operating location. It also enables U-2 aircraft deployment, Deployed Operations Training for the Royal Air Force and served as an alternate landing site for NASA's Space Shuttle.

    The performance begins Saturday, May 25, 2013 at 12:30PM EST, and can be viewed live at: www.livestream.com/virtualtornadodemo

    The mission of the FSX Blue Angels is to replicate the precision flying and professionalism of the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the "Blue Angels", and to be an integral part of the Flight Simulator X community, through community service and outreach.
