About This Image

Four of the US Navy's Blue Angels F-18s (I think there are seven total) making a turn in formation, practicing for an air show at Rochester, NY in 2004. There were a dozen or so of us watching on a hill a few miles south of the airport, I think they made a couple low altitude (and very loud) passes for our benefit. How cool can you get?!!

Great shot! I've heard them between the buildings of Chicago practicing for the air and water show this year. It sounded like one of the building blew up, and when I looked out the window and saw them pass I was very thankful! Whew!

cool shot alright, and cool experience. We get treated to a similar sight locally, with our Canadian "Snowbird" flight team. One of their team pilots died while flying a year or so ago,and he grew up in our town, so each time the Snowbirds come to this area, they make several low passes over our entire area, in the lost pilot's memory. I hear them and always rush out to see them, we knew the pilot as a young boy too, he used to love one of our dogs and always visited with it on his way home from school, and even wrote a little Valentines card for the dog and us one year, and put it thru out mailbox
