    Cool pics! The Blue Angles used to come to my hometown every summer and for an airshow. The house I grew up in was right in the flight/landing path of the Naval Air Station where they came so we always got a really cool view.

    Air shows are so cool!! On Friday, the Blue Angels flew over the building where I work. We're just south of the 52 on the 5. I assumed it was pre-show practice flying or something.

    The sound and sensation as these planes come in and pass overhead is amazing. You hear a faint, distant rumble that in a split second is right upon you, loud and threatening and powerful. Your whole body seems to tremble as they pass. Then just as suddenly as the rumbling appeared, it fades to a distant hum and you see the contrails in the distance as the jets shoot straight up, screaming toward the clouds.

    Amazing.

    no dude, that was part of their show. The whole thing went fri-sun. Traffic was atrocious on the 15. It took us about an hour to get from Qualcomm stadium (where the Chargers play to Miramar Rd.)
    But, yea, those F/A-18 Hornets are amazing.

    dude...u just made me cry! i miss that place so much, such a killer place to be stationed.

    we used to watch the show from our barracks, the blue angels would be less than 200' above them and it was absolutely amazing!

    u can see one of our helo's in the background on this pic (ch-53E) ...well, the tail prop anyway. my hangar was the next one over to the left out of the picture.

    thanks for the trip down memory lane!
