The Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron was formed in 1946 by the United States Navy. The unit is the second oldest formal aerobatic team (under the same name) in the world, after the French Patrouille de France formed in 1931.
2021 marked the 75th Anniversary of the Blue Angels Naval Flight Demonstration Squadron. The year also saw the squadron upgrade to the F/A-18E (single-seat) and F/A-18F (two-seat) Super Hornet, replacing the legacy F/A-18 Hornet fighter jets that the flight demonstration team has flown for 34 years. First flown in 1995, the Super Hornet is about 20% larger with a 7,000lb heavier empty weight, and 15,000lb heavier maximum weight than the original Hornet.
