The Blue Angels at Lynchburg Regional Airshow

Since this is a day of celebration, let's go to a U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, The Blue Angels, airshow. These pilots and the Boeing F/A-18 Hornets they fly are spectacular to watch!

It was during their Lynchburg show that they experienced a safety issue so they were grounded after that. Because of that issue, the C.O. voluntarily resigned but they are now back on schedule.

I have had the pleasure of seeing The Blue Angels several times and even though the show is the same every time, it is still exhilarating to see! If you ever get a chance to see these guys perform, don't let it pass you by. It is an experience you will not soon forget.

A friend of mine used to be one of the maintenance crew for the Blues and he has tons of memorabilia from his time there.  He gave me a really cool poster and the official patch below. - Reggie
