The Blue Angels is the United States Navy’s flight demonstration squadron formed in 1946, and is currently the second oldest formal flying aerobatic team in the world, after the French Patrouille de France formed in 1931. The squadron’s six demonstration pilots currently fly the F/A-18 Hornet in more than 70 shows at 34 locations throughout the United States each year, where they still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in their aerial displays in 1946. An estimated 11 million spectators view the squadron during air shows each year.

    Nice capture! I’ve seen them a couple of times. I’ve also seen the Air Force Thunderbirds perform many times during the Air Force Academy graduation ceremonies when I lived in Colorado Springs. They are quite impressive as well. They fly the F16. I should dig up some old slides and scan them :)

    The Blue Angels did go to Colorado Springs once several years ago. Obviously they knew it was an Air Force (and Army) town, so they purposely flew around the city quite a bit before landing. They stopped traffic all over town!
