Blue Angels And The 2011 Centennial Of Naval Aviation

(click pic for hi-res)    Click here for a pdf file of the 2011 Blue Angels airshow schedule

 2011 is shaping up to be an amazing year for the United States Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration team. Several of the events that they will be performing at are also special Centennial of Naval Aviation events. You may have seen my post the other day showing several of the extremely cool retro painted Navy aircraft that will be on display at many locations around the country... and if you do a little cross reference work, you'll be able to find airshows where some of those aircraft will be on display AND the Blue Angels will be performing too. I'm thinking an airshow can't get any better than that!

 If you've never seen the Blue Angels, or haven't seen them lately, then I highly suggest you start planning your opportunity to see them right now. In my opinion, this is the absolute pinnacle of jet demonstration teams... few things on earth can impress you as much as these men and their airplanes.

 If there's any doubt in your mind as to the extreme awesomeness of the Blues, watch this video below from youtube user jimboking. It's shot with a flip video camera from the back seat of one of the F-18's during an aerobatic routine. These guys are unbelievable!
