Blue Angles: mind the headstay!


Fishermen and pleasure boats got a treat after a member of the US Navy Blue Angels aerial aerobatic team made a high-speed pass right in front of them.

The manoeuvre sent a huge water vapour cloud radiating from the F-18 fighter during an air show in the San Francisco Bay area yesterday.


The Blue Angels’ mission is to enhance Navy and Marine Corps recruiting efforts and to represent the naval service to the US and foreign nations.

The team is stationed at Forrest Sherman Field, Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida during the show season and are due to fly 66 shows in the United States during the 2007 season.


Since its inception in 1946, the Blue Angels have performed for more than 427 million fans.
