The Homecoming Air Show is held at Pensacola Naval Air Station, Florida, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 11, 12 & 13, 2010. Gate admission is free. Gates open at 8 am each day. The show begins at 9:45 am, with the Blues scheduled to fly around 2 pm.* The pilots do sign autographs after the show. Over 100,000 people are expected to view the show daily.
Visitors are directed to the air field parking from both gates, but are encouraged to use the shuttle
parking lot to avoid very long walks. Buses will make the rounds, taking patrons to and from
the air show site. Traffic is well handled and clears the base easily after the show.
Patrons may bring chairs, however, no coolers, backpacks, food, drinks or pets will be allowed. A handicap area is set aside for wheelchairs and an accompaniest only. No seating is provided. MWR rents bleachers to provide seating for those not bringing chairs and bleacher seating is available for $5 per person in advance or $7 after Nov 3. Many large groups reserve seating in advance so bleacher seating is limited and pre-purchase is recommended. Bleacher,
Box and Flight line seating package are offered on our seating page.
The show includes static displays of aircraft of all types, food, beverage and vendor booths,
virtual reality experiences and other attractions that make this show a favorite excursion for
folks from all over the country. There will be a Kids' Zone, virtual games and bungee jump to entertain the children. Home Depot will have a Kids Workshop Area with craft projects.
For those who have never attended an air show, be advised the aircraft can be VERY noisy
and young children need protection for their ears. It can also be windy on the tarmac and
layers of clothes are recommended. The temperature usually ranges between 60-70 degrees.

The public is invited to join sponsors and military for the night air show held on Thursday evening.
Visually stunning, this show is worth the extra trip out to Sherman Field for the "light show"...but of course,
we hope you will attend the day show and stay for the night show. You are allowed to bring chairs and blankets.
Don't miss the fantastic fireworks by Riche's Pyro!
The night show begins with the National Anthem at 4:30 pm. Since the day show ends around 3 pm,
there is going to be difficulty getting to the airfield until departing traffic is cleared out, so it is
recommended visitors arrive before 3 pm or after 4 pm - preferably from the back gate off
Blue Angel Pkwy. The Blues go up around 2, and they aren't included in the night show The show will feature:
Emerald Coast Skydivers
Bob Carlton & Salto Sail Plane
Aerostar Formation Aerobatic Team
F-16 Viper E Demo Team
Shockwave Jet Truck
Otto the Helicopter
