NAVAL AIR FACILITY EL CENTRO — To help leave a positive and lasting impression on the community, even after they’ve flown off to the next show site, the Blue Angels developed the Key Influencer Rider Program years ago.

On Thursday, two local community members took to the skies as part of the program in the No. 7 jet just days ahead of the annual NAF El Centro Air Show.
