    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - As part of the upcoming “Thunder Over Utah” Air Show at the St. George Municipal Airport later this month, Dixie State University will welcome the United States Navy Blue Angels to campus for a special community event on Friday, July 25, beginning at 8:30 a.m., at the Eccles Fine Arts Center Mainstage Theater. The event is free and open to attend.

    The hour-long event will feature a formal program introducing the U.S. Navy Blue Angel pilots and crew, along with a video presentation highlighting various aerial maneuvers and formations. The event will be a great opportunity for the community to meet and greet the Navy Blue Angel pilots, who will share their thoughts on flying, leadership and what it means to serve our country.

    In addition, the U.S. Navy will showcase a SEAL dune buggy and trailer, both of which will be parked in the Eccles Fine Arts Center west parking lot, as part of the event for the public to view.

    For more information, please contact the DSU Public Relations Department at 435-652-7544 or Dan Puleio at Navy Recruiting District (NRD) Denver Public Affairs at 303-866-1984, ex. 323.
