Blue Angels

| October 11, 2008


We took a trip up to San Francisco to watch the Blue Angels perform during Fleet Week. Apparently, Fleet Week is a pretty big deal up here. It seemed like thousands of people lined the San Francisco Bay in order to watch the many demonstration flight teams.

We made the trip with both of Ron’s sisters’ families. His sister, Julie, is an old neighbor of the current Blue Angel commander, so she was able to secure some excellent for us in the VIP section. The weather was beautiful, warm with clear skies and just a slight breeze, probably the best day Ron has experienced in San Francisco. From our seats, we could see the Golden Gate Bridge off to the left and Alcatraz to our right.

Below are a few clips from the first half of the one hour demonstration.
