Blue Angels Perform Flyover in Downtown Norfolk

The Navy’s famed Blue Angels performed a flyover along the Elizabeth River in honor of Naval Station Norfolk.

The six plane formation began the flyover near the I-264 Berkley Bridge between Portsmouth and Norfolk.

The jets then continued along the Elizabeth River past Nauticus and toward Naval Station Norfolk. The flyover happened between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Naval Station Norfolk, the world’s largest naval base, turned 100 years old in June. The Navy has been holding numerous events throughout the year to commemorate the base’s centennial.

The culminating event will be Fleet Fest on Oct. 21.
