BRUNSWICK — The Navy’s Blue Angels are coming back to Maine, but fans are going to have to wait a year.

The next Great State of Maine Air Show is scheduled at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station for 2017, and the Navy flight demonstration team will once again be the headliner.

It’s going to take place on the weekend of Aug. 26-27, 2017. Executive Director Steve Levesque from the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority says it’ll be every other year, going forward.

The most recent air show was in September. It returned this year after a three-year break when federal budget cuts grounded the Blue Angels. The show took place every other year and was run by the military until the Brunswick base closed in 2011. The show is now operated by the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, which runs a business park on the former base.
