The Air Show Comes to Virginia Beach This Weekend

The Air Show is coming to Virginia Beach this weekend!

The Navy is celebrating “50 Years of Women in Naval Aviation” during this year’s Naval Air Station Oceana Air Show, slated for Saturday and Sunday.

This year also marks the 75th anniversary of President Harry Truman signing the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act, which made females permanent members of the U.S. armed forces. And it is the 30th anniversary of the repeal of the combat exclusion law — a repeal Griffin and Oslund affectionately refer to as “flying untethered.”

“It took 20 of the last 50 years just to get a level playing field,” Oslund said. “And it has taken the 30 years since then to grow the kind of experience and seniority that is needed to fill those positions.”

Lt. Amanda Lee, the first woman on the Blue Angels demonstration team, will take to the sky Saturday and Sunday during the air show.

“Some things have taken way too long,” Oslund said. “But that said, it’s amazing how far we’ve come.”
