    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

    Thanks so much for sharing the video with us Chuck. I have also seen the Blue Angles many times...but not from that angle.

      Pretty Typical

      Just standard formation flying - we do it every day in the Air Force. It's part of pilot training (OK, not the loop with gear and tailhook hanging, but that's just to show off). And flying upside down for extended periods is no fun whatsoever. What makes these guys good is finding a runway that's floating somewhere out in the middle of the ocean and landing on it when it's moving up and down plus-or-minus 40 feet!!!! Take a look at their landing gear sometime on a static display. Then compare it to an Air Force landing gear. The difference is when we land, we "kiss" the runway. The Navy performs a controlled crash - and then hopes they don't bounce before the tailhook catches.

        I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

          Oh what a treat. Years ago we went to Air Shows in Oshkosh, WI. Greatest memory was the Concorde.

          Not quite. The idiots in Maryland are keeping the kids in school until June 21. A lot of schools don’t have a/c so they will send them home early. The blue angels are here every year for graduation. In September there is something at the inner harbor and the Blue Angels, Thunderbirds and another group...
