VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The annual Naval Air Station Oceana Air Show returns Saturday Sept. 16.
The event features demonstrations from the Navy’s Blue Angels, the F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team, the F/A-18F Rhino Demo Team, as well as some stunt flight performers.
This year, the show is celebrating 50 years of women in naval aviation. According to the show’s website, the first eight women began flight school in Pensacola, Fla. in 1973. Six of those women — known as “The First Six” — earned their Wings of Gold.
