Blue Angels on July 4th weekend: photos

July 2, 2012

  • Good news:  for the past three years an air show has been held about a half-mile from my office Headquarters.  Last year we had USAF Thunderbirds.  This year: US Navy Blue Angels.
  • Bad news: seems like it's been 95 degrees and humid each year on this particular weekend.
  • Good news: you can go down to water's edge and experience the thrill of the flyovers -- and get a few pictures.  These say "Happy 4th of July" as well as any fireworks.

Happy 4th of July, everyone!

The following images were taken on Sunday July 1, 2012.

Suddenly they're upon you!

Over the bay... almost feel it in your hair..

No, kiddo - look up !

(In the original photo you can see the pilot's outline - so close!)

With the American flag and the white picket fence ...

Another flag moment...

Found 'em! 

They fly across ...

... and ... up ... up ...  up ... !

"Weeeee !!"

In formation ...

Out of formation ...

Hooray either way!

Wishing everyone a happy holiday, from all of us at Actio Corporation.
