Advisory

2016 Bay Area Fleet Week Takes Off at Oakland Airport

The Blue Angels will use Oakland International Airport (OAK) again this year as its base for Fleet Week 2016. The Port of Oakland announced that in addition to the Blue Angels, this year OAK will expand its hosting to additional Fleet Week participants, including United States Air Force aircraft, other performance teams and aerobatic planes, and France’s Breitling Jet Team.

The Airport is preparing for the week-long airshow that will take place the first week of October by reaching out to neighboring communities and residents about the week’s unusual flight activity and possible noise impacts. The Port of Oakland highlighted that OAK is working with the Blue Angels and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to minimize noise by using the airport’s main commercial runway at South Field to the extent practical.
