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.
