Point Mugu Air Show soars high this weekend at Naval Base Ventura County

California

The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, best known as the Blue Angels, and the U.S. Air Force Demonstration Squadron, famously known as the Thunderbirds, are headliners on March 18-19 at the Point Mugu Air Show.

This will be the first time the two topnotch demonstration squadrons will appear together at the Point Mugu Air Show. They have only performed twice together at two other events.

The first air show at Point Mugu was in 1960 and was called the Space Fair.

The opening ceremony on Saturday is at 10 a.m., and aerial performances start at noon.
