The U.S. Navy Blue Angels performances require a larger aerobatic box than normal, with a modified crowd line in force during the afternoon air shows on July 28-29.
The crowd line will run the entire length of the flightline, about 120 feet west of the regular crowd burn line. The line will be clearly marked and will run through the entire length of aircraft camping, including south of the ultralight area. Visitors will have access to this area until 1:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Pilots and crew members with aircraft parked between the two crowd lines will be allowed in the area with a security escort to preform essential tasks only 1:30-4 p.m. on Friday and 1:30-5 p.m. on Saturday.
Full access to the area will be restored after the completion of the daily air show on Friday, July 28 and Saturday, July 29.
In addition to the modified crowd line, visitors and pilots should also be aware of the temporary flight restriction (TFR) on Friday, July 28 from 10 to 11 a.m. All aircraft operations will be restricted within a 5-mile radius of Wittman Regional Airport from the surface to 16,000 feet MSL during the Blue Angels orientation flight beginning at 10 a.m. CDT on July 28, which is expected to last 60 minutes.
