Default Blue Angels Flying

Here is some video of the Blue Angels flying. I think the right wingman is always a Marine pilot.

They flew for us in San Diego this weekend out of MCAS Miramar (formerly NAS Miramar aka Top Gun). We are lucky that our home is situated on a canyon edge such that one of their yearly routines passes our backyard low and tight ... sending chills up your spine. At 3:45 pm yesterday and today I'm out on the deck giving them the thumbs up. I kid you not.

I was stationed in Miramar in the 80's. I flew in the Angels C130 with the JATO bottles for take off. Cool stuff
