Fleet Week 2023: Oct. 1-9

OAK will serve as the temporary home to most of the Air Show performers:

  • Blue Angels
  • other military aircraft
  • aerobatic aircraft

Description of General Activity

During Fleet Week, Blue Angel operations are anticipated off the North Field during many of the times listed below, and residents off the departure end of Runways 28L/28R will experience an increased level of noise. On arrival, Blue Angel aircraft typically perform a “carrier break,” which generally brings the aircraft overhead of the airfield, after which time they will initiate a descending 270 degree right turn towards the runway. Residents immediately north and east of the airport will experience an increased level of noise from these arrivals.

  • Sunday, 10/1: 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Blue Angel #7 and Crew Chief arrival (North Field)
