Here is the classic Blue Angel tight diamond formation. In this formation usually at lower speeds they performed maneuvers such as formation loops, barrel rolls and various other transitions. The most amazing thing is how close the 4 planes are to each other. The speakers you see below were used to let the crowd know what formation was coming up. It also give you an idea of how low they were flying. In 2009 more than 8 million spectators came out to watch the blue Angels and since their formation in 1946 , the Blue Angels have performed in front of more than 463 million fans.
