The U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels announced Tuesday that they are returning to Minden-Tahoe Airport Oct. 1-2, 2022.

The Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron released its schedule on Tuesday at the International Council of Air Shows Convention.

During the 76th air show season, the Blue Angels are expected to visit 32 locations, including Minden. 

Military air shows have been one of the biggest draws to the Aviation Roundup held at the airport every two years with crowds of up to 30,000 people.

U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds were cancelled this year due to the coronavirus outbreak.
