El Centro, CA
- Artist Michelle Rouch
of Vail, AZ has been honored with the unveiling ceremony of her “Angels in Flight” artwork at the Naval Air Base El Centro. The ceremony will occur on Friday, 15 March 2013 at the NAFEC Mirage Club in the evening. The artist decided on abstraction to depict the Blue Angel diamond formation crossing a waving American Flag.
Prior to “Angels in Flight's” permanent home it was exhibited among others at San Diego Air & Space Museum Hall of Fame Induction Award Ceremony.
Nestled in the heart of Southern California’s Imperial Valley rests the Naval Air Facility El Centro. The winter’s optimum temperatures are ideal for flying, especially for the Naval aviation trainers. The NAF El Centro honors the public with an up-close and personal Airshow with aerobatic racing, apache demonstrations, Legacy Flight Team, and aerobatic air show pilots Julie Clark, Bill Cornick Melissa Pemberton, and Kent Pietsch, with a grand finale of Blue Angels roaring across the skies. The gates will open on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 8 am and close at 4pm.
