The Blue Angels will take to the skies Sunday afternoon at the California Capital Airshow, following Saturday’s cancellation due to the squadron’s commander contracting food poisoning, officials announced Sunday morning.
Cmdr. Ryan Bernacchi is feeling much better, an Airshow statement said. Airshow officials canceled Saturday’s performance at Mather Airport after determining that Bernacchi had “contracted a food-borne ailment.”
People who attended Saturday’s show can have their tickets honored for general admission to Sunday’s show, organizers said Saturday. The lue Angels segment of the show starts at 3 p.m.
The Blue Angels are the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration squadron. They perform at air shows across the country for an estimated 11 million spectators a year. They are the stars of the Capital Airshow, which drew more than 109,000 attendees last year.
