US NAVY BLUE ANGELS

Established in 1991, the annual Rhode Island National Guard Open House and Air Show is a wonderful community event offering amazing aerial displays. This year celebrates The Centennial of Naval Aviation featuring the US Navy Blue Angels.

From the beginning, the show has been led by its mission to put on a world class show featuring the best aircraft and pilots and operate the show totally for the benefit of the community. In a 96 hour period, a fully operating civilian/military airport is transformed into the air show venue. Everyone involved shares a commitment to the children of Hasbro and all the local charities that benefit from the effort. To date, contributions to local charities exceed $1,400,000. The Hasbro Children’s Hospital is the largest benefactor and has received over $1,200,000.  (http://www.riairshow.org/index.html)
