When it was originally performed in 1946, this squadron was called the Navy Flight Exhibition Team. Currently, it is oldest flying aerobatic team.
The original team adopted the nickname Blue Angels in 1946. The nickname came from the New York City’s Blue Angel nightclub that one of the team had seen in the New Yorker Magazine. The team introduced themselves as the “Blue Angels” to the public for the first time on July 21 1946 in Omaha, Nebraska.
The squadron was officially redesignated as the United States Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron in December 1974. However, the nickname Blue Angels did not change.
Although they have flown many different type of aircraft over the years, the squadron currently flies the Boeing F/A-18 Hornet.
The Blue Angels’ insignia was designed by then team leader Lt. Cmdr. R.E. “Dusty” Rhodes and approved by CNO in 1949. It has not changed much over the decades.
