The 2010 NAS Jax Air Show is Saturday and Sunday, featuring, as always, the famous Blue Angels.

Gates open at 9 a.m. each day, and the action gets underway at 10 with flight demonstrations, aerobatics, a jet-powered truck and plenty of good old noise.

Drivers can enter at the NAS Jacksonville main gate on U.S. 17. 

Parking and admission are free, and there will be aircraft on display, merchandise and concessions and a Kid's Zone -- also free.

There will be five hours of speed and spins leading up to the Blue Angels at 3 p.m. The Air Show website has a complete lineup of aircraft and performers scheduled for the weekend.
