The Navy's Blue Angels were giving a show at an airshow near my house. We are situated almost directly in front of the main runway about 2 miles away. Needless to say, we got a show from the backyard.
And we could actually see some of the pilots as they flew so low. However, I'm not impressed with the Blue Angels. My ex-fiance was a pilot, a damn good one too and she could fly circles around those planes doing as fast as they wanted, and she could do it sidesaddle too!
