Biloxi Air Show 2018 – The Mississippi Gulf Coast is proud to have the Blue Angels flying over our gorgeous coastline. Hearing them practice these past couple of days has brought back great memories of the past. I have been lucky enough to see these professionals fly all over the world. This is a great family event. Watching the children smile as they see the Blue Angels in action is priceless.
Here is a schedule of events from the Sun Herald.
