Angel9 scheduling for 2015

We are currently scheduling for the 2015 air show season and selected shows for 2016! Our first priority for shows are those with the Blue Angels, but we are open to other air shows and events as our schedule allows.

Angel9 is available as a ground attraction, free for air show visitors to enjoy and photograph. Military personnel in uniform are welcome to sit in the "cockpit" and have their picture taken. Angel9 features original art under the hood, nav and directional lights, cockpit-style displays, mock ejection seats, custom audio and video system, and more!

Angel9 is not endorsed by the U.S. Navy or associated with the Blue Angels. Angel9 is a tribute car that has been well received by the public as well as performers, including past Blue Angels teams. In 2012 we were invited to photograph Angel9 with their planes, and at every show we have attended, their maintenance teams have enjoyed using it as a place to sign autographs. We also give away "trading cards" of the car and candy.

Angel9 is presented by Air Show Ministries, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves the air show community behind the scenes. As part of our mission, we offer two free services to the air show we attend: first, we provide free water and shade for the Blue Angels' VIP area. This has been vital for the Friday show especially, as vendors are often not set up for the practice show; second, we offer free chaplain service for the entire weekend, which can include pilot briefing prayer, invocation and crisis counseling in the event of a mishap. Even if we do not bring Angel9 to an air show, we can provide chaplains to be onsite all weekend.

For more information about Angel9, email or call 303-726-5238. Thanks for your interest in Angel9 and Air Show Ministries! Find us on Facebook at "Angel9 - Air Show Ministries" or Twitter @AirShowAngel9.

Air Shows 
There is no up-front fee for Angel9. Angel9 is very popular with air show guests and performers alike. Anyone can view the car up close and take pictures at no cost. We are usually placed in front of the Blue Angels VIP areas as their maintenance crew uses the car as a place to meet with the public; as a service to the air show, we provide free water to the Blue Angels' VIP (friends and family) for the entire air show weekend. We also have a 10x10 tent for shade and giveaways. We will need space to park our truck and 20ft enclosed trailer.

Colorado Car Shows 
Since Angel9 is a not-for-profit venture, we can bring the car if you waive the entry fee (unless it is a charity fundraiser). Angel9 can be included or excluded from judging at your discretion. We will also need space to park our truck and 20ft enclosed trailer.

Special Events Angel9 is available to air museums and other venues as our schedule allows.
