Here are a couple more formations that the Blue Angels flew. In the top photo I managed to catch them flying in a very tight formation. It almost looks like the jets are touching each other. Below are jets 1 to 4 flying alongside each other preparing to circle around for another pass. Its hard to beat the excitement of being at the airshow. The oohs and ahhs of the crowd and the shrieks of joy from the kids. Eleven million people a year watch the Blue Angels perform  in around 70 shows and 35 cities. If you have a chance be sure to catch them in person.

Its bonus photo time with two views of the famous Blue Angels Delta Formation. The top picture shows the Blue Angels as they were passing overhead and the bonus photo below shows them on their approach just prior to the overhead pass. The Blue Angels have a four jet group and two solo pilots. Here all six of the combine for the “pinnacle of precision flying.”   It just a sight to see and hear these jets perform. Be sure to come back tomorrow for more Blue Angels photos.

Today we begin our series on the Wings Over The Pacific airshow at the Joint Base of Hickam and Pearl Harbor. The main feature is the Navy flight demonstration squadron’s Blue Angels.  Here they pass by in their famous diamond formation in their F/A 18 Hornet jets. These high-performance, tactical aircraft are designed to operate from aircraft carriers and land bases. They point out that the performance shows the agility of the pilots and power of the jets and are not stunts but rather maneuvers that are used in actual combat and flight training. More on them tomorrow.
