Celebrating the Blue Angels first demonstration with the new Boeing F/A-18C Hornet, developed for them by Shana Carpool Aircraft, and as a bonus on the occasion of the 2018 Homecoming Air Show at NAS Miramar where the Bug will be officially launched, we will be having a raffle of a stock version F/A-18C similar to the ones soon available to the general public.
They will come in two variants of US Navy VFA-25 "Fist of the Fleet" squadron: a CAG aircraft (AA/400) and a low visibility version (AA/402). Colors are made by the United States Navy Third Fleet in Second Life official supplier Eight Shades of Blue and the raffle winner will have personalized liveries with his or her name on both versions.
We would like to thank Ms. Shana Carpool for her gracious gesture, giving away a F/A-18C for the Homecoming Air Show raffle, and hope to see you at Miramar on the weekend of February 10 and 11, for two days of excitement and fun with the Navy Flight Demonstration Team Blue Angels!
The Raffle tickets may be purchased on site at various locations during the Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show at NAS Miramar, February 10 and 11.*
* It was decided that the raffle tickets are free - which means only one ticket per person.
We will be having a do over raffle of a stock version F/A-18C similar to the ones soon available to the general public. The winner of the raffle held during Homecoming weekend graciously returned the voucher allowing for another person to have the chance to win the new Bug!
The raffle station will be placed at NAS Miramar, by the main gate, from February 18 to February 25, at which time the winner will be determined. So head on to Miramar and enter your name!
