The convocation will feature a formal program introducing the U.S. Navy Blue Angel pilots and crew, along with a performance by “Northwest Passage,” the Navy’s “top-40 style” rock band. This will be a great event for all high school and college age students and the community to meet and greet the Navy Blue Angel pilots, who will share their thoughts on flying, leadership and what it means to be a front runner in America.
In addition, there will be a Navy Simulator Ride in the Eccles parking lot that will be open to the public that morning until 12 noon. The Navy Simulator is a full-motion ride with high-definition video and surround sound that simulates the environments in which the US Navy operates, whether under the sea, on the ocean, or in the air and outer space.
The “Thunder Over Utah” Air Show will be staged at the new St. George Airport on Saturday and Sunday, March 17-18, 2012. The event features the United States Navy Blue Angels, single-ship military demonstrations, classic warbirds, civilian performers, static aircraft displays and fun activities for kids and families.
