Last week I gave a sneak peek of the Blue Angels during their practice for the Grand Junction Air Show. These images, taken during the actual show on Saturday, give you a closer look at the four-ship formation during the performance.
It is nothing short of amazing the precision that is displayed by these four pilots as they maneuver their F/A-18E Super Hornets at hundreds of miles per hour and mere feet from each other.
It is worth noting that this year’s team features Lieutenant Commander Amanda Lee in the #3 left wing jet. Commander Lee is the first female demonstration pilot to serve with the team. Bravo zulu, shipmate!
