    Brings years to my eyes. My father was a P51 pilot out of Bodney, England during WWII. God Bless America.

    There are a lot of flight demo teams out there and they're all very good but the Angels are in a league all their own. Go Navy!

    Great stuff. Thanks for the distraction from our current events. Living next to MacDillAFB in Tampa I love the yearly air show here as I can sit in my yard and watch them fly over my house. I remember the F4 Phantom`s flying over a long time ago when they were stationed at the base. Thanks again and stay safe everyone.

    I was stationed at NAF El Centro in the early 80s. When they came there for winter training, I remember each morning, the diamond formation flying over my base housing unit and hearing over the PA system.. down at the flight line...."Directly before you, the Blue Angels ...1982...1983....1984"
    "She said her name was Emergency and asked to see my gun....said her telephone number was 911"

    Outstanding video! Thank you for sharing it.
    Every man should own a fine firearm, a fine knife and a fine watch.

    I've seen the BAs at least seven times, the T-birds four. Not raggin' on 'em at all but if you're gonna' see both, see the Thunderbirds first. If you see 'em after you've seen the Blue Angels, they come off as kinda' lame. They don't fly nearly as close or as fast. Of course, they aren't drivin' F-18s either which may have a lot to do with it.

    Saw the Blue Angels in VA when one got to low and they stopped the show. The top guy lost his job the next week.

    Good show but when I saw them in Tuscaloosa I was really impressed by the Raptor, thrust vectoring is something.

    ...When my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence.

    Seen both teams a number of times and both are good. And even though my Dad was Air Force I still would pick the Blues over the TBirds. Navy (BA) pilots have to learn to catch a big cable off a pitching 1000 foot deck in the middle of the ocean. And the airport ain't even in the same place it was when they took off. And I they miss the cable the pucker factor amps up exponentially. Now, the AF boys are good too. But they get 10,000 feet of solid concrete that is stable and ain't rolling up and down. I suppose a cross-wind might have to be dealt with.

    Don't get me going about the Coastie helo boys putting down on the fantail of a cutter. Those boys are nuts!!!
