Nice ride, thanks for the post.

We saw the blue angles perform last year 2017 at Oshkosh several days in a row. Watched them practice too. awesome jets to watch fly.

This eve the guy in the powered parachute took off early I heard and was not to supposed to be flying yet when one of the jets flew by.

I took this video, see the black SUV? There was several of them all around that weekend. There was no cars allowed in this area. We thought they had something to do with the blue angles?

Did not see them this year at Oshkosh and the blue angles did not perform.

Thanks. I had never seen that video before.
They put on quite the show.
They were at the Reno Air Races a couple of years ago.
Here's a couple of shots I got of them.

Years ago I worked for a telecommunications company and our office was parallel and not far from the runway at the airport.

The Blue Angels (could have been the Thunderbirds) were in town for a air show that weekend. On Friday they did a rehearsal.

Much of our fairly large office when outside for the treat.

Seeing one of those planes flying upside down where normally planes were taking off and landing was quite a treat!

They are at the local air port here for an air show I believe every other year, had the tom cats this year. They practice all week and fly right over my places as I am about 5 miles from the air port. No vid can do them justice after you see them live.
