Is Fleet Week in San Francisco again!
The Parade of Ships did not go as planned this year but the Blue Angels were present, and once again graced the skies with their skilled manoeuvers.
Every year you hear people complain that the planes are too loud, waste a lot gas and are only an instrument of propaganda for the Navy. Well, that may be true, but personally I love to see these guys up in the sky. And I am not the only one.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people come from all over the Bay Area to gather up on the waterfront. Others stand on the rooftops, hang at the windows or perch themselves somewhere high up wherever they can, just to see them perform and cheer them on. This year was no exception.
This year, I found a nice little shady spot up on the hill right above the Fort Mason buildings.
The visibility was excellent today and we got to see some of the planes fly right under the Golden Gate Bridge a couple of times ... now that was pretty daring but oh, sooooo cool!
Thanks for the fantastic show, guys, see you again next year!
